The Lorne Sculpture Biennale (LSB) is a vibrant festival celebrating the best of Australian and international sculpture.
A free public event held every two+ years, where the stunning Lorne foreshore becomes the picturesque pedestal for sculptures and the venue for a vibrant program of events.
Victoria’s most prestigious sculpture event, now in its seventh iteration, the Lorne Sculpture Biennale is an iconic event for arts lovers and novices alike.
Under the artistic direction of Graeme Wilkie OAM, the 2021 event will explore the intersection of nature, history and social connection to Lorne and the Great Ocean Road through the theme ‘A sense of place’.
LSB2021 – ‘A Sense of place’
As in the past a sculpture trail along the beach foreshore will be created from south to north.
A new model will present up to 16 public art projects created in “precincts” along this foreshore.
Each precinct will become a transformed space, and artists will take ownership of their precincts to create new experiences.
They will be free to highlight the diverse influences that make Lorne unique as a magnificent natural location but one of fascinating human activity, both now and in the past.
Exploring the construction of the Great Ocean Road, the changing face of tourism, first peoples, early settlement, shipwrecks, surfing, beach culture, timber and fishing industries will be some of the themes.
Select events, over the 3 weeks, will complement the artistic inspirations and celebrate the regions ‘sense of place’ delivering a unique experience to be celebrated including the indoor small sculpture exhibition and other events
The festival aims to increase interest from visitors and stakeholders, continues to grow in its professional delivery, while still being primarily volunteer-based.
