Budgie Smuggler: Selected work for 2015 Swell Sculpture Festival
Lindquist, Marissa (2015) Budgie Smuggler: Selected work for 2015 Swell Sculpture Festival. [Digital/Creative Work]
Budgie Smuggler is the first work of a series entitled slang, reflecting upon other, often unintended meanings behind popular Australian expressions.
Synonymous with Australian beach humour, the term budgie smuggler unintentionally masks the desperately tragic plight of wildlife trafficked every year within and beyond our borders.
Bird wildlife are fiercely protectively of their kin, often flocking to a site of distress of those trapped or injured - a commotion ensues, helping to scare predators away.
The work contemplates our own position and action in response to our captive feathered friends.
Budgie Smuggler is a soft resin/silicon, cotton material, fibreglass and recycled object based artwork.
