A curatorial, consultancy and project management platform for contemporary art.
Reko Rennie‘s Remember Us references the marble monuments and inscriptions of ancient Rome, drawing on the weight and gravitas of the stone
to highlight the abuse of power within the Australian policing system.
Through the reclamation of a Eurocentric medium by a First Nations
artist, Rennie seeks to elevate the magnitude of a pressing national
issue to an international platform, imploring wider acknowledgement,
discourse and action.
