Following the post yesterday, here are some more photos of the Sculpture in Context exhibition of art at the Botanic Gardens in Dublin. The sculpture can be seen until the 16th October and most of it can be bought as well. There is a €3 catalogue available at the entrance which will let you see the prices; which vary from as little as €300 to – a lot more!
Flotsam and Jetsam by Verona Stellet. I really liked this, perhaps because of the connection with the sea.
And another view
But, repeating my reservations about using a botanic garden as a venue for art, I was horrified that the public thought it was acceptable to walk across the borders to get closer to the sculptures. What sort of idiots do this? Well I saw some people doing just that and did say something, but it didn’t stop them.
Burlesque by Mags O’Dea. While I am in a grump I have to say that I think this poor Eucalyptus gunnii must be totally humiliated by having wax ‘breasts’ stuck on it! Poor tree.
New Life by Agnieszka Krym. This piece of limestone was a puzzle to me and I was not sure what the depression represented unless it was vaguely embryonic. Hmm, not sure
Bird Song by Michelle Hannan. On a more positive note I thought these birds were quite cute and looked good among the grasses
Stalkers in the Mist by Orla Kaminska. I am not sure if I like these a lot or not but they are interesting and I did like them in situ
…I could see these in a garden
The Swan Lake Ballerina by Vladislav Dainovski. I thought this was a bit literal – putting swan wings on a ballerina – but I am sure lots of people will love it.
Contemporary Banana by Kevin Pierce. I didn’t really go much on the shape of this but the local magpies loved it – maybe because it was shiny
Classical Growth by Ken Drew. Easy on the eye, perhaps because of its classical pretensions.
Plane Tree by Steve Doody. I can’t say much about this except that, intriguingly, it appeared to move, presumably because of the colouring and not because of my espresso in the cafe.
Spring Symphony by David McGlynn. This small piece was exquisitely made and was attracting a lot of attention
