About the artists

Narinda Cook

Narinda Cook is a Naarm/Melbourne based artist working with spatial practice, creating sculptures and site specific and performative installations. 

Her work often responds to the body and architecture creating site-specific environments. Her use of children’s arts materials evoke nostalgia and memory whilst exploring play and time. Her current series Unearthly Delights questions the use of unsustainable materials and their contribution to the climate crisis. 

Cook completed a Bachelor of Fine Art, Sculpture at VCA and has held solo exhibitions at Gertrude Contemporary, Bus Gallery, Westspace, Linden Contemporary, Incinerator Gallery and Trocadero Art Space. She has participated in group shows nationally and in New Zealand including at Heide Museum of Modern Art and Project Space at Deakin University. Her work is held in private collections nationally and internationally.
