2022 Lorne Sculpture Biennale

12 March – 3 April 2022

Lorne  Victoria Australia

Carmel Wallace, Lorne Lode: Sampling the Core 2022 [detail] installation of 17 sculptures, H90-150 x 40-123 x D35-60cm, painted & stencilled museum crates, recycled materials, bioluminescent particles.      Carmel Wallace drive-by viewing of the full sculpture installation
Utilising her familiar methodology of gathering materials indicative of place, Wallace cut ‘core samples’ from locally-sourced, recycled, manufactured and natural elements embedded with stories of Lorne. These were presented on wooden structures created to play on the idea of museum-style crates with their reference to valuable contents. Stencilled words and images painted with bioluminescent particles offer further conceptual readings.  Saxophonist and composer Michael Wallace was commissioned by LSB2022 to write and perform an original piece in response to the site and installation [Lorne Lode: Sampling the Core 2022].
