Vol 38(4) - Lakorra

Taking us back to a time when Melbourne was a flat open expanse, and the sky would envelop you, Wadawurrung artist Bindi Cole reminds us what it felt like to be a small part of a larger world, ‘a lovely feeling of insignificance’ where ‘it’s not all about self ’. Today, the sky is often obscured, and we’re bombarded with advertising and consumerism. ‘There’s a constant focus on self.’

Our cover image, Lakorra, is from the exhibition On the Edge of the Unknown which ‘explores the space between worlds: the space that defines you’. Lakorra, the Wadawurrung word for sky, aims to bring a bit of the sky and open expanse back to the streetscape. As Bindi says, ‘Conveying a sense of openness, of a time before the city stood in its place and of a people who walked here long before there were streets, Lakorra allows us to ponder something deeper, more meaningful and greater than ourselves’.
