03 Nov Bronek Kozka | Sculpture by the sea work destroyed
Bronek Kozka’s work, ‘Fair Dinkum Offshore Processing’, exhibited in Sydney’s 2016 Sculpture by the Sea exhibition was destroyed by ‘king tides’ less than a week after the opening. During an unexpected storm Bronek’s work was swept off Tamarama Beach into the sea along with the work of three other exhibiting artists.
“It was made in response to successive governments who have decided to ill treat some of the most vulnerable people on the planet…Their treatment has been shameful… I’m upset that it’s gone but I’m more upset that offshore processing is an issue we need to keep in peoples’ minds and now they won’t be seeing it.” – Bronek Kozka
The sculpture has been salvaged and is currently in storage.
