Commissioned by creative agency Yakkazoo and curated by Head of First Nations Programming, Rhoda Roberts AO, VANDAL is proud to have been involved as CoLab animation partner for “Badu Gili”, a digital placemaking, permanent art installation projected onto the eastern Bennelong sails of The Sydney Opera House.

Badu Gili (meaning “water-light” in Gadigal language) features the work of six First Nations artists Djambawa Marawili AM, Mervyn Rubuntja, Mabel Juli, Patricia Ansell Dodds, Penny Evans and Aiona Tala Gaidan.
