2019 Wanambi: bark paintings and hollow logs by five Yolŋu artists

6 - 27 April 2019

The epic song cycles around the ancient ancestral Wanambi tree and the creation and flow of the Gurka’wuy River have dense and rich text held in the epic song poetry, and each of these stages has a design specific to the estate which the story is passing through.

In this exhibition five Waṉambi artists explore the full cycle from tiny stream to crashing ocean, in their bark paintings and larrakitj (hollow logs). Presented in association with Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre, Yirrkala, Northern Territory.
