Palmer Project - Art & Ecology - Bienniale

Karl Chilcott, Christine Chilcott

The Palmer Project
In 2001 Adelaide sculptor Greg Johns purchased a former sheep grazing property in the Palmer Hills, about 70 km east of Adelaide. Greg’s intention for the property is to display a collection of his own works and a range of other contemporary sculpture, and to undertake its ecological rehabilitation. The broader art and ecological aspects of the Project are evolving as a microcosm of the range of issues pertinent to the relationship between art and ecological and social sustainability.
The sixth Palmer Sculpture Biennial presents works by sculptors from around Australia and overseas. The sculptors and visitors engage with a stage whose set includes the unique Australian blue sky, wonderful cloudscapes, never ending horizons and a returning landscape, which has now been under revegetation for thirteen years. This clearly provides a huge contrast to the white walls of a contemporary gallery.
The sculptors have a free hand both conceptually and visually in their response to the environment – they can choose how their works interact with the natural setting.
