Ghostly congress


At the northern end of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney I found this sculpture of human like figures with bright, featureless faces clad in thick cloaks. I have never noticed it before so it may be a new exhibit. I could not find any references who created it or what it supposed to be. Hoever, I could not refrain from comparing this art to another artist carrying name Szukalski – Albert Szukalski, who had a well known “Ghost” project in Belgium. He placed similar featureless figures made out of white cloaks through cities. He took his art to Death Vally, where “The Last Supper” sculpture had received critical acclaim.

Man and an anchor


There is an anchor sculpture next to the Sydney Town Hall building. This man stood in front of it for a considerable amount of time studding it very carefully. The sculpture is quite simple and rather “ordinary” and yet he took quite an interest in it. After few minutes of looking at it he took a camera out and took what seemed to be a single photograph. Perhaps he was an art student on an assignment.

While he was studying the sculpture I had to be patient to get a clear photograph of him as this is rather busy place with many pedestrians. I was rather lucky as this was a cloudy, overcast day and the light conditions were less then favourable for photography but then in time some light got through the cloud cover and illuminated his face and the tip of the anchor.
