19th Biennale: AGNSW and Artspace

Here are more Biennale photos from last Wednesday (how sluggish am I with posting), when I visited the Art Gallery of NSW and Artspace. You can see the ones from MCA and Cockatoo Island here.




Video of performance by Sasha Huber, about Louis Agassiz, a 19th-century scientist who "researched" and encouraged racial separation/apartheid.



There was going to be a performance artist there at 12, and there was a while to go, so I decided to hop over to Artspace first.



I'd never actually been here in Woolloomooloo before.


It's a small space and there were all these bird sculptures on the floor! 59, apparently.


They're by Ugo Rondinone. Each of the birds had a name, like "the sun" and "the horizon".


I then went back to AGNSW for the performance art. It was too dark to take pictures in the room, so here's the description. It was a dark room you had to stoop through a little door to get into, and there was a winding path through the trees. It was quite eerie.



A well-deserved lunch at Well Connected cafe in Glebe. I got a steak sandwich.


The chips are really good there.

  3. I haven't been to the Art Gallery of NSW in the longest time, but this is really tempting me! That steak sandwich looks amazing by the way, I may have to swing by the next time I'm around Glebe :)

    1. Very cool, although I had to google the spelling! I tried looking up to see what the meaning of the name is, but the origins of it are disputed.

  7. Sad story. Went to the city for both the Biennale & Vivid, my DSLR len's broke... In my disappointment I went home instead. However I'm going for a second attempt on Thursday! Fingers crossed all goes well. And seeing other posts about it gets me so excited!

  9. Heh heh heh. Wooloomooloooooooo. I wish every suburb was called that. (But maybe not to avoid confusion and insanity). I really want some chips now.
