Newell Harry

Newell Harry is an Australian artist of South African / Mauritian descent. Largely nomadic, his work draws from a loose skein of contexts from Oceania and the broader South Pacific, to the Asian subcontinent and South Africa where extended family continue to reside. From language and anthropology, to cargo cults and the ‘gift economies’ of the Oceania, these interests often culminate in culturally entangled installations engaging a wide range of media and application.
