Biennale of Sydney – Cockatoo Island

I recently went to the Biennale of Sydney  and was intrigued by that “free ferry to Biennale of Sydney” I had no idea where it was going but figured there would be some art involved. So I embarqued, and landed on Cockatoo Island.

Cockatoo Island is the largest island in Sydney Harbour and a former imperial prison “Between 1839 and 1869 the island was used as a convict prison. Initially, prisoners were transferred to Cockatoo Island from Norfolk Island, and were employed constructing their barracks and rock-cut silos for storing the colony’s grain supply” (wiki)

Here’s what it looks like

Noah’s ark, the sign says “Bookings here 2.30 -3.00 Animals only. Pairs prefered.”

Most disafected buildings were used for art installations, the light was absolutely amazing and even though I didn’t had my good camera, I am really happy with my photos !

Please, let me know if you like them (and if you don’t) . For those who have been to the Biennale, what did you think of Cockatoo Island ?

You have one more week to go check this out so better hurry !
