Sharing ideas that do good

Jonathan Jones untitled (maraong manaóuwi)

post-image
untitled (maraong manaóuwi) comprises over 2000 maraong manaóuwi/broad arrow designs created with red and white gravel sourced from Wiradjuri Country, covering 2500 square metres of the Hyde Park Barracks courtyard. Visitors can walk on the work, a process that intentionally results in the work’s slow destruction. This performative act questions memory, our individual roles in history, and the protection and preservation of cultural sites. Marking the reopening of the Hyde Park Barracks, the design symbolises the maraong manaóuwi (emu footprint) and the English broad arrow as a way of understanding history and cultural relations. https://sydneylivingmuseums.com.au/
