A permanent sculpture trail for the people of Victor Harbor and South Australia and their visitors.
‘Sculpture Encounters – Granite Island’ places sculptures by artists from South Australia and across the world among the spectacular scenery and coastal views on Granite Island. By integrating sculptures into the landscape it aims to provide visitors to the island with a different experience as they wander the track. The sculptures are leased from artists who have previously exhibited in one of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibitions at Cottesloe Beach in Perth or on the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk in Sydney, together with specially commissioned installation works for sites on Granite Island. Each of these works has been carefully selected by our Curatorial Panel. Visit the website here.
‘Light and Gale’
A weather-responsive installation that captures the full forces of the dynamic breeze. Positioned on the exposed coastal headland and taking the form of two site-specific “windsocks”, these kaleidoscopic patchworks will articulate the wind’s invisible forces and act as a marker for direction and speed. Rotating on a 360-degree pivot point, the windsock will continually shift to face the direction of the wind, harnessing the all too familiar force as it breathes in the sea air.
Materials reclaimed tents, sail and gazebo fabric, fabric webbing, gaffa tape, fibreglass rod, steel pole, stainless steel rotary arm.
Dimensions 500 x 600 x 600 cm
