Lara Chamas | What’s that Skippy? | resin, nuts, bolts | 2017
Forever marching backwards to the tune of Centrelink’s (Mozart’s originally) ‘Divertimento in F major, K. 138’, What’s that Skippy? directly contradicts Australia’s self-gratifying idea that it is a country only moving forward. From imbalances of wealth, ineptitude of government and archaic social politics, the mighty kangaroo that once bounded onward has passed its prime, shrivelling into a haphazard zombie, losing all sense of direction.
