APT7

I went to GOMA today with some friends to look at the APT7 (the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art) exhibition! 
Some of the artworks were really interesting. 

Sophie decided to be a dinosaur for the day. A sophiesaur. 
We actually found that dino head in a box of recycled paper at GOMA.


This artwork is by Nguyen Manh Hung, entitled "Living together in paradise". 
The details amazes me.

Artwork by Paramodel. 

"Roaming with the Dawn - Snow Drifts, Rain Falls, Desert Wind Blows" by Tiffany Chung 
This installation consisted of 4000 hand-made glass sculptures.

Artwork by Raqib Shaw. The surface of the artwork was shimmery. 
(It was finished with gems, glitter, and rhinestones) Just w-o-w.


I was also particularly drawn to this stop-motion video, "Everyone is Everbody" by Tromarama which looks into consumerism or something. It was basically consumer items such as bags, shoes, socks etc that could talk sing.

We went for froyo after! I'm so glad froyo stores finally opened in Brisbane, all of them around the same time too! Now there are too many to choose from. Oh well, I think I'm obsessed now. I've had these for three days in a row. "Guilt-free enjoyment" they say. ;)

  8. GOMA always looks amazing because it's so different to the ones that we have in Sydney. And yay for froyo! I love the froyo craze haha. There's a suburb here in Sydney that has 5 froyo stores in that one small area. It's crazyyy.
