The winning Sculpture Acquisition Prize in the Bayside Council's 2019 art prize is for Come out, Come out Hippo, Wherever you are

The game of hide and seek conjures feelings from our childhood of safety, love and joy. Gillie and Marc believe that all people and all creatures have the right to live in a world where safety and love are the rule, not the exception. Unfortunately, safety is often seen as a privilege rather than a right for many species of animals. Endangered species have had to hide from humankind for far too long. With 'Come out, come out wherever you are', the artists call on the world to welcome these species out from hiding and into a place of safety and love.
