Discover the Giants of Mandurah
The Giants of Mandurah Wooden Sculpture Trail is a unique public art event arriving in the Peel region on 12th November.
Created by world-renowned Danish artist Thomas Dambo, this Australian-first exhibition will feature at least five site-specific works. Up to five metres tall and created from recycled wood and other materials, the creatures will be placed in secret locations waiting to be discovered via a trail map.
Initiated and produced by FORM, the exhibition will be delivered in collaboration with the City of Mandurah. FORM has previously put on cultural projects such as the PUBLIC Silo Trail, and the Field of Light: Avenue of Honour in Albany.
Dambo’s wooden sculptures have been a source of fascination and awe worldwide, popping up in Denmark, Chile, China, France, Germany, South Korea and the USA. For his Peel region installation, locals have been enlisted to help with the creation of the sculptures.
This free-to-view exhibition celebrates the diversity and beauty of our natural world and the importance of protecting it, including Mandurah’s globally significant Ramsar-listed wetlands, waterways, bushland and wildlife.
The story of the Giants sits alongside and is intertwined with a Mandurah creation story, gifted by the region’s Traditional Owners – the Bindjareb people.
The art installation will be on display for at least 12 months and is expected to attract thousands of visitors. More information here.
