Barkindji Blue Sky – Ancestral Connections #1 Ed 3/8
Kurnu Barkindji people were many, then were very few, we are many again and connection to our ancestors continues across generations, cycling through time, past, present and future. We discover, reunite, share family histories and remain linked via many means while our ancestors watch over us under a Barkindji blue sky.
By reconstructing the built environment, my art practice reveals the continuing presence and patterns of Aboriginal history, culture and knowledge in the contemporary Australian landscape.
Barkindji Blue Sky-Ancestral Connections #1 was inspired by a family reunion and manipulates structures and nature into new forms that reflect elements of Aboriginal tangible and intangible cultural heritage and reinforce cultural continuity since time immemorial.
