“Catch Me” is the name given to this eye-catching and highly amusing sculpture that sits at the Community Centre of Seaford, a southeastern, coastal suburb of Melbourne. It was designed and constructed by Danish artist Keld Moseholm. Born in 1936, Moseholm mastered his skills at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen, followed by a period of study at The Academy of Art, Odense.
He has built a reputation for his comical and satirical works of public art and has been commissioned to make sculptures around the world. “Catch Me” depicts a seemingly overweight couple about to engage in an act where one is about to attempt to catch the other falling off a stone column. The sculpture is made of bronze and granite. It has become a local favorite in Seaford.
The sculpture is accompanied by a small plaque that reads: ‘This sculpture represents the image of human behaviour where dramatic situations often occur and which can be both tragic and comical.”
