Djirrirra Wunuŋmurra, ‘Yukuwa’ 2016. Earth pigment on board, 90 x 120cm. Courtesy: the artist and Suzanne O’Connell Gallery, Brisbane.
The works made by Djirrirra Wunuŋmurra are painted on pieces of board which were originally used as part of a stage put down on the Yirrkala basketball courts by the Bangarra Dance Theatre for a performance they flew to Yirrkala to perform.
This performance for the community acknowledged the cultural debt Bangarra owes the Yolŋu of Yirrkala for their generosity in sharing their sacred dance since Bangarra’s inception.
Exhibition opens: 5.30–8pm Friday 8 February 2019
