Art is perhaps the most universal human language, communicating the complexity of human emotions and stories, and can soothe a person who is grappling with loss, death, and grief. Art can be a beautiful healer and reflector of life.
From stunning sculptures placed throughout the Park to our award-winning Jubilee Complex being transformed into a peaceful and beautiful artspace, during the South Australia Living Artists Festival (SALA), Centennial Park, has become a showcase space for local sculptors to exhibit their unique works.
On Monday 10 December at 6pm, we will unveil a major sculpture, at our main entrance off Goodwood Road. The significant artwork was commissioned by Centennial Park with our many visitors to the Park in mind.
Centennial Park is a special place for the community, a place to reflect and remember. This unique artwork will welcome the community to our breathtaking gardens and spaces
The sculpture aims to convey human connection, togetherness, warmth, care, friendship and support – the very essence of Centennial Park.
Created by South Australian artist, Karl Meyer, winner of the Brighton Jetty Sculpture Award for Best Outdoor Sculpture, Karl is recognised for creating original works that are whimsical thought-provoking and inviting of enquiry. Karl’s work has been exhibited in major exhibitions around Australia and he has completed major art commissions in South Australia, ACT and Queensland
Karl’s enthusiasm for art and design arises from engaging in the development process from the initial concept to the final object. A fascination with the evolution of ideas and how they influence people and the physical environment led Karl to study Industrial Design in the early 1990’s. Karl uses the physical form of sculpture as a medium to engage people within the environment, stirring the imagination, and giving them pause to reflect on their surroundings.
We welcome you to join us in the unveiling on Monday 10 December at 6pm.
