About

Reko Rennie artwork for Barangaroo

If you are visiting Barangaroo’s southern dining precinct or travelling down Hickson Road, you can’t miss the large-scale art installation by renowned Aboriginal artist, Reko Rennie.

Titled As the Crow Flies, Rennie’s work has been installed over a 1,500 square-metre footprint. Rennie is one of Australia’s most respected contemporary artists, who explores his Kamilaroi identity through his work.

The three-colour installation, including bright cobalt blue and neon pink, is painted vertically and horizontally on to the exteriors and interiors of building elements and hoardings in the dining and retail area between International Towers Sydney’s Towers One and Two on Hickson Road. 

Rennie has based the work around the fallen feather of a crow, using this as a repeated motif throughout.

The artist says: “The feathers mirror a congregation of people – a meeting place of diverse individuals, philosophies and histories – coming together, reflecting the hive of activity that is unfolding in the redevelopment of Barangaroo.”

Reko Rennie is an interdisciplinary artist who explores his Kamilaroi identity through contemporary media. His work is represented in the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Koorie Heritage Trust, ArtBank and City of Yarra collections as well as the New Contemporary Art Museum in Jiangsu, China.
