MARS Gallery presents work from the Jilamara Arts and Crafts Association in the Tiwi Islands.
Ngirramini, Yimunga, Murrakupupuni (Story, Tribe, Country) brings together the work of six of the Tiwi islands most dynamic emerging and senior artists in an exhibition of new work at MARS Gallery, Melbourne. Across three spaces the works in the exhibition reflect the underpinnings of Tiwi culture, art and life. Ngirramini, Yimunga, Murrakupupuni can translate as ‘Story, Tribe and Country’ but as Pedro Wonaeamirri describes these concepts are all inherently interlinked and connected.
Ngirramini, Yimunga, Murrakupupuni (Story, Tribe, Country) artists: Chris Black, Timothy Cook, Michelle Woody Minnapinni, Gerry Mungatopi, Janice Murray, Columbiere Tipungwuti, Pius Tipungwuti, Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri.
