embracing the plateau (Sculpture By The Sea 2009)

Work by Daniel Clemmett.

Made of recycled steel, car bonnet undercarriages.

Artist's statement: "Offering a wry comment on ancient ideals in juxtaposition with the state of contemporary man, a major health problem in the developed world."

More about the artists here.

Here is his entry in last year's SxS.


  1. Didn't realise there were so many sculptures on display.
    Sydney - City and Suburbs

  2. Talk about undercarriages!

    Don't quite follow this image and the sculptor's ideas. I can see the "ancient ideal" in the plump female form, but I would have thought it is the developed world that has a problem with obesity, not the undeveloped world.

  3. yippee, Sculpture by the sea again !!! I came over to see if there was anything out yet and YES, there is! It feels like Xmas, I look forward to as many posts as you care to do on the subject.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. ... although I have to say I don't like that piece at all LOL

  5. Sydney's sophisticated Sally sometimes sees strange steel sculptures!

  6. Very powerful image and statement. Not something I'd like to keep near me though. ;)

  7. Great picture Sally . You have got a collection of unique pictures around sydney .

    I love reading your blog.
