Subjectively, Newell Harry’s interests and work touch on diverse fields from religion and language, to the postcolonial impacts of trade and globalisation. An itinerant wanderer, his work is largely formed through a complex web of intercultural engagements bridging Australia’s east coast, the Vanuatu archipelago, South Asia, and his extended family’s home in Cape Town. These interests often culminate in installations drawing together a combination of media, generally unrestricted by any singular approach or application. Whilst in Singapore as an NTU CCA Artist-in-Residence, Harry looks at the under represented connections between the Cape Malay of South Africa and the Straits Malay linking these two histories to interchanges on the Malay Peninsula.
