Sculpture Encounters – Granite Island, the art trail that was opened late last year on Granite Island, 80 kilometres south of Adelaide in South Australia,  continues to add new artworks each year and will do so until 2020.  Wonderful works by Yi Cui, Lucy Barker, Jette Mellgren and Lubomir Mikle have been sited this year and last month David Kerr’s work has been added to the sculpture collection.

This joint project between the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources and Sculpture by the Sea showcases sculptures by artists from South Australia and across the world,  placed among the beautiful scenery  around the perimeter of the island that is part of South Australia’s family of national parks.

The 2.4 kilometre trail that includes Britt Mikkelsen’s Ocean Lace (exhibited Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2015 and Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2016) can be walked in about 45 minutes, allowing ample time to enjoy the artworks. Watch the video below to hear Britt speak about Ocean Lace.
