Gracefulness is a tricky quality — it manifests itself as an effortless, subtle harmony between a subject and its environment.
‘Play Me I’m Yours’ is an artwork by artist Luke Jerram. From 6-19 October 2012, ten street pianos were distributed across the streets of the Perth CBD and metropolitan areas as part of the 2012 AWESOME International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things. Located in public parks, streets and squares, the pianos were available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. The pianos were decorated by young people from all over Western Australia in collaboration with Western Australian contemporary artists.
The international sculpting school takes place every summer at the abandoned Montraker quarry near Vrsar. High-quality grey stone (Aurac) has been obtained here ever since Romanesque times. The quarries around Vrsar and Rovinj were exploited to the most extent during the long rule of the Venetian Republic in Istria (from the 13th to the 18th century).
