Beyond the Horizon: The Lure of the Liminal Journey

Julie Andrews, Dr Tim Edensor, Caleb Maxwell & Bailey Cook

This video projection work shares the simple human experience of walking as a metaphor for life’s journeys, departures and arrivals.

The work features a diverse group of local people who undertook a public art walk, which was filmed at the Bendigo Creek. Through the everyday and often mundane act of walking, this work offers an opportunity to notice new perspectives, appreciate individual difference and celebrate opportunities for connection.

The work explores feelings of community, place and belonging, using human movement as a frame through which to view a variety of alternative narratives, a collage of abstracted layers, recognisable yet unidentifiable.

The work is being premiered at the Enlighten projection festival this year, to highlight, in a subtle way, how diversity is an integral part of our region’s community: past, present and future.

This project is curated and originally presented by Enlighten: A Festival of Projection, a City of Greater Bendigo Event occurring in the lead up to White Night Bendigo.

Enlighten: A Festival of Projection is supported by the Regional Centre for Culture Program, a Victorian Government initiative in partnership with the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and the City of Greater Bendigo.
