Sell & Parker Scrap Metal Day

The Sell & Parker Scrap Metal Day took place recently, with exhibiting artists including Ron Robertson-Swann, Philip Spelman, Ayako Saito and Orest Keywan from Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2023 invited to source materials for their work through this valuable initiative.

Sourced by Sell & Parker from building demolitions, industrial operations and other sources, the scrap metal available to the artists for their artworks comes from recycled items made of metal, including old cars, manufacturing off-cuts and demolition steel.

Thank you to Luke Parker, Brad Scobie and all the operators at Sell & Parker for taking the time to make this happen. We look forward to seeing the results at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2023, and future exhibitions.
