It's a Topsy Turvy World
Brexit! Trump! Climate change! What on earth is going on? It’s a Tospsy Turvy world we live in and this year the Weston Sand Sculpture Festival is going to be just that... Topsy Turvy!
Artistic leader Nicola Wood said” We are all so excited about the public choice. It’s the perfect theme to give incredible freedom to the artists and that always makes for a great exhibition”. After Banksy paved the way for controversial and alternative expression in Weston 2 years ago, the organisers are hoping to keep some of that spice alive.
“Banksy was a real breakthrough for the town and we have had endless extravagant requests for sculptures since…including a giant Trump! I’m not sure we all agree on that one though” says Alec Messchaert, event organiser.
“One thing we do promise is that there will be something for everyone and we will continue to be a fun, family friendly event with plenty of interactive activities” adds Alec.
So what exactly does Topsy Turvy entail? Upside down, back to front, the wrong way around and inside out! A crazy world of the distorted and the extraordinary. See the world through different eyes with Zebras dressed as ballerinas, mice the size of houses, houses built upside down and paintings that come to life.
