The Lorne Sculp­ture Bi­en­nale (LSB) cel­e­brates con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional sculp­ture with an out­door fes­ti­val trans­form­ing the fore­shore of the Vic­to­rian Ot­way re­gion. From 17 March to 2 April, the 2018 LSB ex­plores the theme ‘Land­fall’, pre­sent­ing ma­jor works and new com­mis­sions from 41 artists in re­sponse to press­ing global is­sues of na­ture and en­dan­ger­ment. High­lights in­clude Ni­cole Vo­evod­inCash’s in­flat­able tree mu­seum, and per­for­mances by Jill Orr and An­ton Hasell that en­cour­age au­di­ence in­ter­ac­tion. ‘Sculp­turescape’ reimag­ines the land­scape as seen in Ryan Kennedy’s in­stal­la­tion of 10,000 glass bot­tles in which vis­i­tors can write and in­sert mes­sages. ‘Ma­jor Projects’ in­clude Shirin Abe­din­erad’s curved wall of mir­rored TV sets, which cap­ture the ocean and viewer – re­flec­tive of the bi­en­nial theme and the in­ter­sec­tion of na­ture, hu­man­ity and art.
