Dhambit #2 Wanambi: GUDULTJA – Maternal Oceans

July 15 - August 31

Installation view of Dhambit Wanambi’s Gudultja. Courtesy: the artist and Vivien Anderson Gallery, Melbourne.

Surrounded by Gumatj and Djapu clan lands is the beach known as Yalanba, a small pocket of Marrakulu clan country. This is Dhambit Wanambi’s own identity and that of her father’s and siblings. One of her brothers is named Yalanba from the songs of this place. It is here and only here that the glittering metallic black sand which Dhambit incorporates in her paintings comes from.

Wanambi honours her own connection through her mother’s mother to the Djapu clan whose oceanic waters known as Balamumu meet her own honey-imbued Marrakulu water flowing out from Gurka’wuy (Trial Bay). The play and clash and flow of this connection create the songs and the patterns of this place which are manifest in her work, which is timeless yet dynamic like the water and the history of this place and her family.

The gallery is operating by appointment and adhering to COVID-19 social distancing measures.

The exhibition is available to view online from 15 July. View exhibition here.
