Reiby Place, Patchwork of Light


"Patchwork of Light" is an artwork which was installed on the side of a building along Reiby Place in 2013. It consists of an array of ten brightly coloured light boxes emblazoned with figures and phrases in the Sydney indigenous language and English bringing Aboriginal, European, political and sporting histories to life. It was created by Lara Schnitger and was developed with Wiradjuri/Yuin elder Aunty Bronwyn Penrith, whose journey has been dedicated to reclaiming the culture of and respect for Aboriginal women. A closer look at the light boxes can be seen here.
