Goodjal ba Ngoonii Koorndaam

Noongar artist Jarni McGuire's work for Brookfield Place's One the Esplanade in Perth illuminates cultural heritage that speaks to place, coming together, and celebration.

Goodjal ba Ngoonii Koorndaam

We’re excited to share with you stunning new artwork for Brookfield Properties’ new development, One The Esplanade. The culmination of three years of planning, problem-solving and perseverance in close collaboration with First Nations artist Jarni McGuire and Apparatus

A newcomer to the world of public art, we welcome to the fold Jarni McGuire, whose artwork “Goodjal ba Ngoonii Koorndaam” is a striking contemporary artwork and a personal response to the Whadjuk Noongar Two Brother’s Dreaming story from kura kura (long time ago).

One The Esplanade is a sophisticated workplace tower at Elizabeth Quay developed by Brookfield Properties, designed by Hassell, and built by Multiplex for Chevron Australia.

Central to the conceptualisation of the artworks is the Chevron Whadjuk Working Group, who provided guidance on cultural protocols.

The curatorial brief was derived from their advice: "The Artwork should embody the idea of energy; the energy of people living and working together, the energy and vibrations of Country.” We think the artworks do just this. 

Big thanks and congratulations to the wonderful team involved. Many hands.
