We are excited to announce a new public artwork commission by Camille Serisier installed this month in the heart of Wynnum.  Taking the form of a bucket and spade, Camille’s artwork is a charming reference to the sand castle competitions held in Wynnum during the 1930’s.  Camille’s playful sculpture celebrates the rich history of the Wynnum coastline whilst contributing to the vibrancy of the community and lifestyle in the area.

The sculpture is made from powder-coated stainless steel and concrete, measuring 2.85 meters in width.  The large scale encourages visitors to climb, sit on, and interact with the work.  Sand Castle Competition was commissioned by the Brisbane City Council as part of the Wynnum Suburban Centre Improvement Project.  The local Wynnum community voted on the selection of the artwork, allowing Camille this fantastic opportunity.

The artwork was realised with the help of Russell Anderson at ArtPlusDesign and now features on the corner of Florence Street and Bay Terrace, Wynnum Queensland.  For more information and images please visit Camille’s website, and the Brisbane City Council website.
