Hidden in Rookwood (Photoblog)

“Rookwood is the oldest, largest and most multicultural cemetery in Australia, and Hidden invites the public to experience the historic and cultural significance of this iconic site… [it’s] an outdoor sculptural exhibition that steps outside the notion of mainstream galleries and typical outdoor sculpture exhibitions.” – Hidden In Rookwood


Notes from the field:

  • Hidden 2016 ran from 23 September to 23 October. It was the sculpture walk’s third run. Check out their gallery on their website here. They also have a rather unheralded Instagram account.
  • Hidden was by far the most enthralling and mind-jogging sculpture walk I’ve been to in Sydney. I urge you to check it out next year.
  • The day we went was muggy, with heavy, threatening clouds overhead. Luckily for us, the rain stayed away and we roamed in peace. We came across the audio-visual piece at the end, just as we thought there wasn’t any more to see. It was the perfect way to end our stay.
  • Ram’s, a South Indian/Sri Lankan takeaway joint down the road in Flemington provided us with a great feed beforehand.
  • Remember, alles ist vergänglich.

All photos were shot on 35mm film, using my little Ricoh camera. Check out Lucky35, a vintage film camera exchange based in Sydney.

About Tim Spricht

I'm interested in language and identity, which is why I created Tim Spricht. My last name happens to start with 'S', too. I run this space on the belief that, in a globalised world, it is has only become more important and interesting to learn how to cross borders.
