REKO RENNIE: OA_CAMO
Now showing
Gallery 17 | Free entry

Reko Rennie is an interdisciplinary artist who explores his Aboriginal identity through contemporary media. Titled OA_CAMO this site-specific work initiates our re-presentation of the Australian Art collection that will incorporate galleries 6, 7 and 17 over coming months.

This work is an extension of Rennie’s Visible Invisible series, which inverts the idea of camouflage, designs conventionally used to render the visible invisible. Rennie’s use of camouflage amplifies, rather than conceals, his identity and stakes his claim to a luminous and commanding form of cultural visibility.
