Brenda L. Croft: Longing for home

Brenda L. Croft‘s 2015 series Jinparrak is included in the exhibition Longing for Home at the Art Gallery of NSW, until 22 August. The exhibition includes work by six Aboriginal artists who explore the ideas of history, place and the incomprehensible connection we have to the land where we come from or belong to.⁠⁠
About the series: Jinparrak is the Gurindji name for Old Wave Hill Station, from where the Gurindji and associated peoples, including Malngin, Mudpurra, Ngarinman, Bilinara and Warlpiri peoples, walked off the station on 23 August 1966 in protest at working and living conditions which saw them ‘treated like dogs’.⁠⁠
Represented in the series are objects collected by the artist Brenda L. Croft during her practice-led research in the region. The objects include: rusted old horseshoes, strands of fencing wire with their ‘Cobb & Co’ twists, and the solitary drinking mug constructed from a discarded food tin and twisted wire, hand-rendered by an unknown stockman. ⁠⁠
