Illuminate Adelaide and the Government of South Australia, through the South Australian Tourism Commission, are partnering with innovative regional councils and award-winning artists to shine a light on South Australia.
Harbor Lights will transform Victor Harbor across two weeks with a collection of immersive installations, lighting and mind-blowing projections. Rug up, hit the pavement and follow the light as Illuminate Adelaide takes over the Victor Harbor foreshore.
One of the highlights of Harbor Lights is Craig Walsh’s, Monuments.
Night-time projections transform trees into sculptural monuments, surveying the immediate environment. Monuments aims to challenge traditional expectations of public monuments and the selective history represented in our civic spaces.
Cleverly deconstructing its own definition by humanising the monument, there is a temporary fusion of everyday individuals with other living species occupying shared areas. Undermining the permanent historical and public art models so often controlled by subjective motivations, Monuments recognises the infinite contributions which influence our understanding of place.
More artists to be announced soon ...
