Life size sculptures steal scene

Local News Plus

Seven life-sized sculptures, including the infamous Paparazzi Dog by contemporary artists Gillie and Marc, are on exhibition at Bankstown Central until April 30.

Featuring the heads of animals on top of the bodies of celebrities, the ‘Celebrity Animal’ exhibition includes Arnold ‘Stag’ Schwarzenegger, Pamela ‘Poodle’ Anderson, Dr ‘Bear’ Evil, Michael ‘Dog’ Jackson, and Jessica Rabbit.

Bankstown Central marketing manager John Klein says unlike some exhibitions, children and adults are encouraged to touch and interact with the characters.

Imagination and magic will also spread to the Centre Court stage with the amazing Elio Simonetti presenting ‘The Magic Show’, ably assisted by the glamorous Eva Salleh, at 11am and 1pm daily from April 13-17.

A professional conjuror since the age of 15, Elio has performed around the world, including before the Prince and Princess of Wales.
