Curatorial, Public Art and Interiors

Balarinji’s groundbreaking cultural design principles and methodology framework enriches Australian public places and major projects by activating and celebrating the local Aboriginal narrative. We deliver exceptional outcomes for projects through the beauty and spirituality of a site’s Aboriginal narrative.

Proven experience


We work across a wide variety of installation media and have experience working on many different interior and exterior sites, including large scale public infrastructure, interpretive precincts, parklands, national and international institutions, corporate offices, retail outlets and public spaces. 


We support our clients' translation of strategic objectives into the physical implementation of Aboriginal heritage within master planning projects.

Our experience extends to, but is not limited to:

  • Interior and exterior public art

  • Landscape art

  • Urban furniture

  • Floor art

  • Wayfinding

  • Glazing

  • Wallpapering

  • Acoustic interior treatment

Art integration

On many projects we integrate Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal works. With our work ranging from Indigenous, military and settler interpretive elements at Jezzine Barracks, Townsville, to non-Indigenous sculptural works at Darwin and Alice Springs Airports, and an Australian commemorative garden with public art in Passchendaele, Belgium, we recognise the presence and value of integrating and contextualising non-Aboriginal heritage themes.
