Kalamunda nest sculpture mystery grows

By Breanna Inferrera

THE Kalamunda nest hunt doesn’t seem to be over, with the latest gigantic nest sculpture having recently popped up.

As reported in Secret nest sculptures a Kalamunda art mystery (Echo News, August 21), three nests, made out of tree sticks, had been discovered at different locations within the City of Kalamunda including Mundy Regional Park near Crumpet Creek and outside the Zig Zag Cultural Centre.

Each nest is accompanied by a label which says ‘title’, ‘artist’, ‘music’ and ‘track’.

Community member Nicole Airay said nest ‘six’, which appears to resemble a wasp’s nest, rather than a bird’s nest, is situated in an undercover carpark.

“What initially resonates with me about nest six is music reference,” Ms Airay said.

“Daft Punk are amazing electronic music producers whose real identity is unknown, a bit like our Kalamunda nest artist.

“I also like this particular installation because as much as it’s simple, it’s complex and meticulous in its construct and placement.

“I am impressed with all the nests, I strongly appreciate the anonymity of the artist and the story to be told by unveiling the nests.

“I wonder what music choice and artist the Kalamunda nest artist will select to accompany the next nest and how it relates to the art installation.”
