Over three weekends in March, the 2018 Lorne Sculpture Biennale (LSB) will be showcasing the best in modern Australian and international sculpture. The free festival will be a celebration of the Lorne foreshore and the Great Ocean Road, inviting art appreciators to walk through and view a wide range of works that exhibit an explicit admiration for the beauty of the local surrounds.
Entering its sixth year, the LSB hopes to bring the community together to recognise the 41 artists featured in the exhibition Landfall. Under innovative curation by Lara Nicholls, the art show will present major works and new commissions, with each artwork illuminating worldwide issues of nature and endangerment.
Striking sculptures and installations which visually articulate the connection between nature, humanity and art, produced by esteemed local and international artists, are positioned across the mass sweep of Lorne’s iconic foreshore, an imagery you have to see for yourself.
With over 60,000 visitors in 2016, the exhibition is set to attract again as Landfall sheds light on the heated moral issue of environmental preservation through the power of meaningful art. Works will be featured that incorporate light, sound, performance and projection, appealing to all of your artistic senses.
It’ll be held from March 17 until April 2. For more information on the festival, visit www.lornesculpture.com/
