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 keyring that will not only stylishly hold your keys, but offer a piece of art to your everyday routine.
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.
