The 19th Biennale of Sydney has only just begun, and I have been blessed to explore the strange contemporary art exhibitions ranging from Norway to Australia, China to Poland, with my best friend and wyfy 4 lyfy, Liana.
This was my second Biennale after falling in love with the entire event after 2012's excellent array of artists (particularly Eva Kotatkova's Theatre of Speaking Objects). 

The Biennale is spread over a variety of places in Sydney, including Cockatoo Island, MCA, Art Gallery of NSW, Carriageworks and Artspace. Because of the geographical spread of the event, seeing it all in one day is not possible, even two days is pushing it. For $5 you get this beautifully printed booklet with all the information one could need on the exhibits, maps, talks, highlights and other essential material. I will be visiting the art Gallery of NSW, Carriageworks and Artspace to see the rest of the Biennale event in the coming weeks.

I have not seen Liana in a year, so it was a special moment for us to catch up, eat mexican, gossip by the harbour and take stupid selfies as if we wouldn't see each other again for another year (let's hope sooner). Our gossips stretched to magazines and I likened her reaction to the Kimye US Vogue cover to Darth Vader's "NOOOOOOOO" in Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. Pretty excellent if you ask me. Will she ever buy a Vogue again? I am not so sure.

The sun was out and I am pretty sure I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day with Liana. I forgot how energetic and beautiful Sydney is as a city. It is still the most beautiful city I have ever seen in my life, and I am getting closer to justifying that claim. It was so great to spend time with her and see her really get into the art of the Biennale and using her camera. I kinda just wished she would come back already though. Sydney needs ya gurlllll
