Burwood Brickworks Aboriginal Artworks
Balarinji was engaged by Frasers Property Australia to design public art installations for Burwood Brickworks in Victoria, Australia – the world’s most sustainable shopping center. Balarinji worked with local Wurundjeri, Dja Dja wurrung and Njuari illum wurrung artist, Mandy Nicholson to develop an artwork concept deeply embedded in place and reflecting the Wurundjeri culture. The installations included a ceiling mural and outer facade murals. They are a unique yet powerful example of successfully embedding and celebrating Aboriginal culture into the urban context that is deeply connected to place.
