Point of Interest

Wuganmagulya (Farm Cove)

Australia / The Pacific

Wuganmagulya (Farm Cove) was installed in 2000, as part of the Sydney Sculpture Walk programme.  This large terrazzo work is embedded into the paving, crafted in muted colours which reflect the natural elements of the environment around it. It lies on the foreshore promenade of the Royal Botanic Gardens, between the gardens and the sea.  It is the work of  Brenda L. Croft (born 1964), an Aboriginal artist from Perth.  Her artwork honours the presence and importance of Indigenous people in this part of Australia, both throughout history and today.  In two sections of the pathway, Croft used terrazzo and stained concrete to depict figures from Sydney Aboriginal rock carvings, some of which no longer exist. Along the kerb of the pathway, she etched in red the names of women and men, places, animals, tools and rituals from the many clans and language groups of Indigenous people in the Sydney area.
