Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The sculpture The Sun Also Rises by Morgan Jones won the Aqualand Sculpture Award at the 2019 Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi and has been gifted to Council.

The proposed location for the sculpture has now changed as a result of an initial round of community consultation. It was originally proposed for Milson Park, and is now proposed to go to one of two sites in Carradah Park, Waverton. Council is seeking feedback via the below online submission form on the proposed location options (see site map in document library).

Submissions close 13 July 2020.

BACKGROUND

In November/December 2019, Council undertook community consultation regarding a proposal to install the sculpture in Milson Park, Kirribilli. The post exhibition report is available in the document library. The community consultation results were reported to Council in April 2020. In response to the feedback, Council resolved NOT to place the sculpture at Milson Park foreshore. Additionally, Council resolved to place the sculpture in Carradah Park subject to identification of an acceptable location determined by senior staff, and community feedback via a minimum 28 day public exhibition period.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY - Morgan Jones (New Zealander, b.1934)

Morgan Jones was born in Surrey, England, in 1934. While in England, Jones spent a large portion of his younger days on his grandfather’s farm, but also witnessed the violence of World War II firsthand in London. Jones later worked in the forestry service, where he taught himself woodcarving. On his arrival in New Zealand in 1955 Jones settled in Christchurch, attending the Christchurch Teachers’ Training College from 1958-59. After teachers college he began to seriously pursue woodworking and moved into producing sculptural works. Since then Jones has exhibited steadily throughout New Zealand and abroad, and is represented in many public collections including the Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin art galleries.
