In this recorded conversation, artist Brook Garru Andrew discusses the development of his career and artistic voice with Lorraine Connelly-Northey.
Their shared Wiradjuri cultural heritage is central to both of their contemporary art practices. This was the first time the two have been in conversation on Wiradjuri Country.
Brook Garru Andrew's exhibition DIWIL opened on 12 March 2021, premiering the new commission GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY, presented alongside other significant works by the artist.
GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY is a wall drawing and neon installation that fully surrounds audiences in the museum’s collection galleries. The work is part of a continually evolving approach to wall drawing and museum intervention, and prominently includes language, with the words NGAJUU NGAAY – I SEE making the gallery a place of inspection, reckoning and exchange.
