Waalarrinji (long-time-now)

Sat 13 January - Sun 25 February

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Waalarrinji (long-time-now) is an exhibition about identity, Culture, and Country. It is about knowledges given, knowledges stolen and knowledges reclaimed. 

For many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples the Indigenous Voice to Parliament referendum was difficult and traumatic. Muruwari artist, Dr Virginia Keft, unpacks the complexities of navigating this landscape of ‘NO’ while proclaiming the strength of Aboriginal Cultures, stories, truths and voices.

Threads of knowledges are stitched into the works symbolically and physically; a patchwork connecting places and people. Snippets of language and stories threaded together across time, connecting past, present and future. Knowledges that were, that are, that will be. Knowledges both private and cultural. 

The weaving technique Dr Keft uses has been carried across thousands of years by women Elders, each one carrying this knowledge for the next generation to come. Weaving practice is a deeply personal expression of Dr Keft’s connection to Culture, place and belonging.
