Brook Garru Andrew: DIWIL
Thursday 13 May 2021 to Sunday 05 September 2021
Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) is proud to present DIWIL, an immersive installation by the internationally acclaimed interdisciplinary artist and scholar, Brook Garru Andrew.
The Wiradjuri word diwil translates to 'collection' and reflects on the artist’s relationship with objects, history, and Country. The exhibition marks the premiere of GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY, a major new installation commissioned by MAMA.
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.
Within the space created by GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY, key works from the last decade amplify the artist’s approach to harnessing alternative narratives to explore the legacies of colonisation and modernism.
Open daily, the museum is the heart of Dean street making it the perfect place to escape the weather, be inspired, meet an artist, get creative, take a break, shop Australian designers, or enjoy a coffee, wine or meal on the gardened terrace. Entry is free.
