Biennale: MCA and Pier 2/3

It was a lovely day today, so I decided to go see a bit more of the Biennale before it ends this weekend. I'd already been to see Cockatoo Island in the mid-year break. I was all alone, but it was nice weather for it.

  
What I wore. Hooray for (blindingly pale) bare legs weather! Shirt was my mum's, skirt from Glassons, boots Doc Martens and Fjallraven backpack.


View of the Harbour from Circular Quay station. Not bad, huh?


First stop: MCA. A lot of the exhibits were the same as the ones I saw when I went last time, but here are some that didn't make it into that post.




I think this one was new. The coloured rectangles kept flipping, like flip-clocks.



This was here last time, but I don't think I got good pictures of it. I really like it, it's spooky - it kind of reminded me of that scene in Toy Story with all the broken and mutant toys...

Next stop: Pier 2/3.

Who needs the Seine or the Thames?


Pier 2/3 is apparently the last undeveloped pier on Walsh Bay. I think the others are theatres, or homes of very rich people.


There were only three large-scale artworks in here, this was the only one I liked.

I walked back to Circular Quay and decided to reward all that walking with Mad Mex (am I ever not craving nachos?)

  3. My legs are ultra pale, I donned them for the first time this year and stood out like a sore thumb with all the spray tanned folks!

    The artwork with the flipping colours sounds interesting... looks ace too

  6. looks like a lovely day out! the last time i went to the MCA was in the middle of the night to watch some of the clock movie so i didn't check out the rest of the museum but i'd like to go again soon. also i went to a band's album release party thing for work at one of the piers not long ago and it was actually a really cool location for a party like that! i guess the ones that are venues/bars must get booked out for private functions, i think the one i went to might've been owned by the sydney theatre company?

    anyway, i have the same problem with my moon-tan on my legs, but what can you do? haha

  12. Those nachos look DELICIOUS. I really liked the colourful "flip clock-like" piece- looks like it'd be fun to look at. Australia looks like such a beautiful place.
    Love your look- I recently bought some Doc Martens and I fell in love with them (they're so comfy!).

  16. This post is pretty much a combination of things that I am really super into: the Biennale (ugh some of the stuff at Cockatoo Island was absolutely mindblowingly good), Kankens, the MCA, and Mad Mex. Also, mildly creepy things in the form of Judith Wright's collection of broken things. So great.

  22. Oh, so nice. The one with the little people/dolls looks reeeeeally spooky to me too. I don't like dolls, and I don't like em in the dark either. - And seriously, it just hit me: you're living in the city of the Sydney Opera House. Fuck a doodle doo.

  23. Haha i have ridiculously pale legs as well, but what can you do.. The day trip sounds fun, sometimes it's just so relaxing to have a day to yourself where you discover and explore new places.
