Korena Magee

Four Sisters in the Sky, is a series of objects created by weaving fencing wire and other materials. The resulting works resemble Australian Indigenous utility items such as handcrafted coolamon, fish traps, baskets etc. The repetitive nature of the weaving process frees my imagination and connects me to my family’s history in a restorative way. When making these works I consider my identity, and my family’s histories and how those histories have influenced me. Four Sisters in the Sky considers a possible parallel upbringing, by making these abstract objects I feel I can reconnect with my grandmother’s family and country.
