Reko Rennie's 1500 square metre installation covers buildings and rooftops all through Barangaroo
Reko Rennie's 'Always Was Always Will Be' was one of Sydney's favourite pieces of public art from 2012 through to its removal in November 2017. But the very next month, a new major public art installation by Rennie was revealed.
As The Crow Flies features 1500 square metres of large feathers stencilled over several major buildings and rooftops at Barangaroo South.
It speaks to Rennie's identity as an Aboriginal Kamilaroi man, and the significance of the crow in Indigenous cultures, using just two colours: bright cobalt blue and the neon pink that appears in many of his works.
Rennie said: “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 Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct.”
