Lorne sculpture festival aims to kick grass


New Dates:  Saturday 12 March – Sunday 3 April, 2022

For the first time in three years, the Lorne Sculpture Biennale (LSB) will return to delight locals and visitors to one of Victoria's favourite holiday destinations. 

Under new artistic direction, the new-look Biennale remains a free event. 

Titled Spirit of Placethis year’s LSB will explore the deep connections of nature, history and community. Held on traditional Gadubanud land, the works will explore the deeper histories of Lorne by taking a deep dive into the town's diverse and fascinating past.

Featuring 16 themed precincts from Point Gray in the south to the mouth of the iconic Swing Bridge over the Erskine River in the north, the invited artists have been selected by curator Graeme Wilkie OAM.  

The owner of Lorne art gallery QDOS, established in 1989, he has been involved with the Biennale since its inception in 2011. 

This year’s Lorne Sculpture Biennale will feature a range of styles including performance art, soundscapes, interactive and kinetic displays, all with sculpture at its heart. 

Spirit of Place will be at the heart of a program that will see other supporting cultural events including workshops, performances, film events and sculpture trail tours.


Wilkie said: “We’re delighted to welcome back the Lorne Sculpture Biennale this year after last year’s cancellation. 

"This year’s theme – Spirit of Place – promises to bring us back to the heart of Lorne, its rich history and strong sense of community. "

The exhibitions will be in situ from Saturday, October 30, to Sunday, November 21.  For more information head to www.lornesculpture.com
