The Wellingtonista and Sculpture

Just The Wellingtonista
    • The rugby sculpture

      • The Wellingtonista
      • A proposal was unveiled yesterday for a Weta Workshop-designed rugby-themed sculpture to grace the city, somewhere, In Time For The Rugby World Cup. The sculpture is highly symbolic, with the DomPost providing a list of all the symbolism, but what does the sculpture most resemble?

    • I for one welcome our new mirrorball overlords

      • Te Papa's forecourt may look as if it's under attack by giant glittery space balls, but it's actually the start of a two-year kinetic sculpture installation called "The Mimetic Brotherhood", by Peter Trevelyan. There's not much kinesis evident at the moment, but once the installation is complete, expect the plinth-eating monsters to start pulsating in their full hydraulic glory.

    • Off the Hook
      • 23 Sep 2009
      • The Wellingtonista
      • While the Hook of Maui has been scrapped due to cost overruns and problems with the frickin' laser, the Wellington City Council is still keen on the idea of a gateway sculpture, and indeed the competition will be re-run later his year.

    • 24 Hour Arty People
      • 11 Feb 2009
      • The Wellingtonista
      • So you can't sleep right?  If the Fringe festival has left you all over stimulated and you are in need of night time novelty may I suggest that you head to the Watsui tonight for the start of a frenetic 24 hour art gumball rally around Wellington.

    • Splish Splash: Bucket Fountain Update
      • 27 Nov 2008
      • The Wellingtonista
      • There's been a bit of action going on at the old Bucket Fountain, icon of Cuba Street. First, it mysteriously disappeared: We initially thought this was a retro '80s David Copperfield-style magic trick, but it turns out it was just taken down for maintenance. The fountain returned, with a fresh coat of paint, ready to splash the good folk of Cuba Mall once again.

      • It may not be Wellingtonista Awards season just yet, but here's another chance to put in a plug for your favourite things in the Wellington built environment. The Wellington Civic Trust Awards are coming up, and the trust wants your nominations for the best recent contributions in the following fields: Building Heritage Environmental Public Space Street Art Nnominations close on the 18th of August, and nominated projects must have been completed since the previous awards in 2005. There's also a separate voting form for best new sculpture, and if the sculpture that does it for you isn't on that list, you could always nominate it in the Street Art category.

    • Hutty goodtimes

      • The Wellingtonista
      • The Hutt is a seething mass of culture (as if you didn't know), and at the moment there is a particularly splendid outdoor exhibition of sculpture, Shape Shifter.

      • Here's another one of the wee guys in this series of temporary sculptures: Quite an appropriate location, atop the long-abandoned toilets and amid the construction of the new Courtenay Place park.

    • Sculpture Garden
      • 7 Feb 2008
      • The Wellingtonista
      • This is one of my favourite places in Wellington: ... and if anyone ever tries to do it harm, as I've heard rumours of happening in the past, well... they just better watch out. Sorry for the crappy photo.

    • Art-Stalker: Man on a mission
      • 31 Jan 2008
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Well, you'd really have to know your way around to guess today's piece just by the photo here. One of the things I've been enjoying is not having to wander too far from the apartment to find some amazing[ly weird] stuff around for you to look at.

    • These are the fixtures of your neighbourhood
      • 13 Jan 2008
      • The Wellingtonista
      • One of the things about living in a great city like Wellington is that there are a hell of a lot of things to take for granted. I mention this because while listening to Don McGlashan in Civic Square the other day he mentioned that Auckland doesn't really have any civic art. I'm not sure that's entirely true... But, in the spirit of parochial one-upmanship I thought I'd bring you some of Wellington's oft-overlooked art and sculpture.

    • A whirled of pain
      • 31 Mar 2006
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Now that the wind's gone (calloo callay!) and the sun's out (oh frabjous day!), wouldn't it be a lovely time to wander down to the waterfront and see the much photographed Water Whirler do its thing? Not so fast, matey boy, someone has had other ideas.
