Biennale of Sydney 2018 review: Cockatoo Island exhibits miss the boat

Artist Yukinori Yanagi with his sculpture on Cockatoo Island.

The main drawcard to Cockatoo Island for the Biennale of Sydney is Ai Weiwei's Law of the Journey, a 60-metre-long inflatable, black rubber life raft, inhabited by 300 faceless, inflatable, black rubber figures. Yukinori Yanagi's maze made from shipping container is an outstanding contribution, but there are unfortunately not many other works that justify the ferry trip.
