Djambawa Marawili AM: Where the Water Moves, Where It Rests


Djambawa Marawili AM, Baru at Yathikpa, 2015.

Curated by Kimberley Moulton
August 18, 2015 – January 24, 2016

where the water moves, where it rests was an exhibition that featured bark painting, hollow log sculptures, and a print by acclaimed Aboriginal artist Djambawa Marawili AM (Yolngu). The detailed works embody the ancestral beings Baru, the crocodile, and Burrit’tji, the rainbow lightning serpent. Through this exhibition, Yolngu people’s ever-present connection to land, community, and culture was expressed and generously shared. Djambawa’s works communicate a deep cultural knowledge that comes from Wangarr (the beginning), or the time before the first morning.
