Unvanished – From acclaimed Barkindji artist Kent Morris (in collaboration with James Henry & Studio John Fish)

May 31 @ 12:00 am - June 5 @ 12:00 am AEST

Unvanished is a powerful new large scale artwork from acclaimed Barkindji artist Kent Morris in collaboration with James Henry – Jimmy Little’s grandson and Studio John Fish. The multi sensory work can be seen at Federation Square until Sunday 5 June.

Unvanished is surrounded by a beautifully lit pool to bring people together in a moment of reflection.

Along with the three faces of time – past, present and future; the sculpture is crowned with three oversized cockatoos, paying homage to the significance of Australian native birds in indigenous culture and story as ancestors, protectors and messengers.

“The interaction of native birds with the built environment reflects resilience, adaption, continuity and change,” said Morris.

“As a community, we must continually strive to share our stories and experiences and promote change so that we can more fully understand, respect and incorporate First Nations knowledges, philosophies and experiences into our everyday lives.”
