Small spaces can reveal a lot

In a building entry/foyer in inner-city Melbourne there’s this installation. It appears, at first look, like a series of post boxes but on closer inspection, it is nothing like that at all. Lucinda Barnett’s work, ‘Years Before Me’ is, “the first artist to exhibit in the annual Mailbox exhibition series POST dedicated to giving recent art graduates solo exhibitions”. She explores members of her family whom she never met through this series of photographs whilst exploring different aspects of memory and nostalgia. Unfortunately, the exhibition finished a week ago.
