Artist: Robert Andrew
24 August 2019 – 3 May 2020 | McAuley Gallery
Social Enterprise Partner: Inala Wangarra
Robert Andrew was inspired by the strong interconnections created by Inala Wangarra’s programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Brisbane suburb of Inala and surrounding areas.
The impact of these programs; positive social change, developing the strength of the local community and culture and the layers of connection created are often not immediately evident to observers but build over a passage of time.
Using earth materials and man-made highly refined programmable technology Robert Andrew’s installation takes its full form over a period of time, similar to the gradual and complex processes of bringing people together in order to build knowledge and share culture.
