folly in the bay

Brick Bay sculpture

There’s a beast that lives on the slopes of Brick Bay vineyard, and you are all invited to meet it.

Resene and Belly of the Beast, the Brick Bay Folly Architectural Award sculpture winner

Belly of the Beast is the Brick Bay Folly Architectural Award winner; an impressive 12-metre structure clothed in a pelt of recycled tyre tread shingles. It forms part of the Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, overlooking the vineyard, showing an ever-changing exhibition of outdoor art.

The design of the winning sculpture by Declan Burn and Matt Ritani has many influences, including Kahu toi (Maori Flax Cloaks), a furry beast, the existing Brick Bay tower and Eva Hesse’s Accession series. And beneath the rubbery pelt is a fiery red interior painted entirely in Resene Havoc (pure red). A cosy setting awaits, with low seating and a burning brazier, permeating gentle wood smoke.

Taking advantage of the generous expertise of the Unitec workshop, the facade panels were prefabricated into five modular components, before being trucked up onto site and assembled with a crane.

The sculpture can be viewed as part of the Brick Bay trail, which is open daily from 10am-5pm. For details and to find out more about visiting Belly of the Beast, see
