Judi MacLaren is a Sydney-based artist whose practice delves into the motif of bird nests. She uses the nest as a vehicle and metaphor to explore the strength and frailty of life and has created a narrative that invites the viewer into a private world. There are glimpses of joy and uncertainty, fleeting moments – familiar to us all – when decisions are quickly made but interminably pondered – we build our nests bit by bit, not knowing what lies ahead. The nest is a metaphor for life – traces of experience; events, home, family and freedom are intertwined.
