Nura is a collaborative artwork by Mandylights and Indigenous artist Warwick Keen.
Nura means ‘place’ or ‘country’ in Gadigal language draws inspiration from traditional South Eastern Australian tree carvings. Here, Warwick's etched designs form a series of complementary patterns. Each pillar highlights a First Nations memory in intricate detail. Seen together, they form an expansive outdoor gallery of illuminated Indigenous art.
Nura is an illuminated artwork that has a striking day and night-time presence and includes up to one hundred and fifty poles that can be deployed in clusters, lines or any other configuration to best fit with a site. The pillars gently change colour, and the full colour printed designs appear to morph constantly.
Nura's availability is subject to cultural approval by the artists and traditional landowners. Please contact Mandylights for more information.
