To celebrate JR’s newly commissioned work for NGV Triennial 2020 – 2021, Homily to Country 2020, an ambitious multi-part artwork that draws global attention to the ecological decline of the Darling River system caused by intensive water extraction due to irrigation, climate change and drought; NGV design store have collaborated with JR to design an exclusive range of merchandise, including this magnet that will hold its own on any refrigerator or filing cabinet.
JR exhibits freely on the streets of the world, where he pastes huge portraits of anonymous people. Concealing his own identity and that of his subjects, JR leaves the space empty for an encounter between the artwork and the passer-by.
Materials: Digitally printed image with epoxy coating.
Dimensions: 9cm x 4cm
