Description

Growing up, Rainbow Lorikeets would always visit Pitok’s childhood backyard, and were such a wild and colourful additional to the suburban setting. This work features shibari, a practice where works are bound and suspended using rope. The constraining ties represent the tensions of quaint suburban life, in contrast to the wild virulence of nature.
