About that large deck chair…

Awhile back, the Mandela Bay Development Agency installed a new art piece at King’s Beach, Port Elizabeth, as an extension of the famous Route 67. The artwork titled “The Photo Opportunity” by artist Mary Duker,  reminds viewers of seaside visits of their childhood with big canvas chairs.

Dorelle Sapere, MBDA Planning and Development Manager, says: “The commission was awarded as a result of a public art competition calling for site specific proposals for artworks to form an integral part of the MBDA’s King’s Beach upgrade project. The Photo Opportunity work forms the first part of a two part installation at Kings Beach”.

From “The Herald” 12th Feb. 2014
“The picture frame is also symbolic of the autobiographical, referring to the tradition of recording and framing visual memories – it is intended to link the tradition of recording the seaside portrait to the modes of the present – the selfies, the smartphone pictures, the images posted on the Facebook page recording life as we live it, with a spectator as participant, and as the star of his or her own life.”
