Native Nesters

Ripple Root

Duo Exhibitiion

10 - 19 November 2023, 11am to 7pm

Celebrating their 10th solo show and nearly a decade of artistic collaboration, the prolific duo is returning to Gillman Barracks, where they drew inspiration from the nearby mangrove swamps and the ecosystem around Labrador Park during their early years of practice. Their deep connection to this area, where the mangrove swamps thrive, serves as the backdrop for this captivating showcase.

Showing from 10 - 20 November 2023, the exhibit explores the harmonious relationship between native plants and animals, highlighting the seamless coexistence of migrating birds and local creatures as a symbol of unity within our diverse ecosystem. Visitors can actively engage with "The Nest," an interactive installation that fosters community participation by inviting them to contribute paper cut-outs, collectively creating a tapestry of memories, shared stories, and a strong sense of togetherness.

About the Artist(s)

Ripple Root is the artist moniker of Estella Ng and Liquan Liew. They make collaborative, carefree works reflecting themes of nature and wildlife. There is an element of simple naiveté in their treatment – calling forth poetry in the raw, pure and irreverent.
