Acknowledging Place | Carol McGregor (AUS)
A participant of The City of Gold Coast's Indigenous Artist Camp, Carol McGregor has created the sculpture Acknowledging Place for Festival 2018.
Providing shelter and colour on Broadbeach, these large-scale replicas of leaves from the cotton tree acknowledge the Aboriginal flag created by Harold Thomas.
Black represents the Aboriginal people of Australia. Yellow represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector. Red represents the earth and red ochre used in ceremonies and Aboriginal peoples' spiritual relation to the land.
