Weapons For The Soldier

  • Hazelhurst Arts Centre 782 Kingsway Gymea, NSW, 2227 Australia (map)

The exhibition brings together both Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists as they explore their connection to protecting land and country. Curated by artists Robert Fielding, Vincent Namitjira and Anwar Young.

Nations Party (2016) is a series of six collaged works on paper which were produced through the Australian Print Workshop’s research project titled ANTIPODES. Hosted by Cambridge University in the United Kingdom, Brook researched the Archaeological and Anthropological collections of Cambridge University and the print collections of the British Museum.

The series collages found imagery and text over re-prints of British caricaturist and printer James Gillray. The process of collaging and assemblage is a constant within Brook Andrew’s practice, he interweaves narratives and employs symbolic references to ultimately place the dominate story and colonial lens under re-examination.
