Brook Andrew
Thu 1 January 12:00am
The complex continuing history and relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples is breathed into life.

In this new commission, artist Brook Andrew depicts the brain – illuminated in two halves and with a created sense of inhalation and exhalation, breathing with often different ideas and futures. This symbiotic relationship is a metaphor for the historical and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples that are interwoven from a complex history. This work shares the artist’s hopes for a future bound through healing and respect.

An original commission by Festival of Dangerous Ideas, made possible by Bill Manos and the Manos Foundation.

MURUNY/breathe will be available for viewing by all ages throughout the Festival 

I was challenged to unwind the histories that were told to me because I didn’t believe them.
