Congratulations to Judy Watson who will create a six-metre new work, bara, as part of the City of Sydney’s seven-part ‘Eora Journey’ public art program.
bara will comprise two towering, crescent-shaped pieces modelled on shapes of the bone fish hooks manufactured for thousands of years by Gadigal women. Made of stone, the sculpture will have a pearlescent finish so as to resemble the hooks that can still be found around the harbour. Work is expected to be completed by mid-2020.
