This exhibition, curated by Hannah Raisin and William Heathcote, brings together the work of three artists Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri, Janice Murray and Chris Black from Jilamara Arts and Crafts Association on Melville Island. Jurrukukini, Maymampi, Jarranga, Muputi, Yirikapaye will feature contemporary Tiwi works celebrating jilamara (body paint design) and ancestral animal totems that inform Tiwi cultural and familial identities.

In Tiwi creation stories, parlingarri (olden times) often refers to an era before mortality came to Tiwi people – when distinctions between humans, animals and the landscape were more fluid. Individuals in these narratives sculpt the landscape with their bodies and sometimes take on animal form.

The gallery is not open but private viewings can be arranged. View exhibition here.
