The 22nd Biennale of Sydney under the title ‘Nirin’, is artist- and First Nations-led, presenting an expansive exhibition of contemporary art that connects local communities and global networks.
Under the artistic direction of Brook Andrew, the exhibition will include artworks across six sites: Art Gallery of NSW, Artspace, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Cockatoo Island, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and the National Art School.
We’re proud to be supporting two artists Hannah Catherine Jones at Nirin. Hannah Catherine Jones (aka Foxy Moron) is a London-based artist, musician, multi-instrumentalist, researcher, radio presenter (BBC Radio 3 - Late Junction, NTS - The Opera Show), composer, conductor and founder of Peckham Chamber Orchestra – a community project established in 2013. Jones’ broad practice is connected by a central spine of inclusivity and “decolonisation”.

The urgent states of our contemporary lives are laden with unresolved past anxieties and hidden layers of the supernatural. NIRIN is about to expose this, demonstrating that artists and creatives have the power to resolve, heal, dismember and imagine futures of transformation for re-setting the world. Sovereignty is at the centre of these actions, and shines a light on environments in shadow. I hope that NIRIN gathers life forces of integrity to push through often impenetrable confusion.
Optimism from chaos drives artists in NIRIN to resolve the often hidden or ignored urgency surrounding contemporary life.
