In his latest exhibition titled The Cleansing, Garawan Waṉambi’s works are imprinted with the pattern of the land and sea of coastal Raymangirr, a sacred and restricted site at Arnhem Bay. These painted patterns describe and conceal larrakitj, which are used by the Marraŋu clan in sacred ceremonies at freshwater springs – representing a symbolic cleansing of the land and people.
Hugo Michell Gallery presents work by Garawan Waṉambi as part of the 2021 Tarnanthi Festival.
Opening night: Wednesday 6th October
