Bhenji Ra - Archive - Kurimanzutto

Bhenji Ra (1990 en Warrang / Sidney) is a performance and interdisciplinary artist currently based on the stolen land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, Sydney. Her practice combines dance, choreography, moving image, installation and club events.

Her work is often concerned with the dissection of cultural theory, colonial perspectives and identity, positioning her community’s personal histories at the centre of her work. With an emphasis on collaboration, her work plays with the multiplicities of spectacle, while daring you to imagine alternative models of community.

Bhenji Ra’s recent group exhibitions include You Are Here (2020) at Town Hall Gallery, Hawthorn Arts Centre, Club Ate: In Muva We Trust (2020) at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, 52 Artists 52 Actions (2019) at Artspace, Sydney, and Rogue Agents (2019) at Auto Italia South East, London. In 2018, Bhenji was the commissioned artist for the Keir Choreographic Award 2018.
