This exhibition invites a new way of looking at Brian Jungen’s internationally acclaimed art practice, including the first-ever presentation of the artist’s archive that offers the viewer insight into his unique method of art production. A selection of Jungen’s striking sculptures made of repurposed objects and materials will be exhibited alongside an epic new moving image work. An artist of mixed European and Indigenous heritage, Jungen explores a long history of cultural inequality, a concern for the environment and a profound commitment to Indigenous ways of knowing and making.
