Kent Morris, Barkindji Blue Sky Ancestral Connections #3, 2019. Archival print on rag paper, 100 x 150cm. Courtesy: the artist and Vivien Anderson Gallery, St Kilda.
Kent Morris’ new photographic series Barkindji Blue Sky was photographed on Kurnu Barkindji country in Bourke where descendants of Jacky and Kitty Knight gathered for a family reunion.
Kurnu Barkindji people were many, then were very few, we are now many again and connection to our ancestors continues across generations, cycling through time, past, present and future. We discover, reunite, share family histories and remain linked via many means, including new technologies. Our ancestors watch over us under a Barkindji blue sky.
Exhibition Opens: 2–4pm Saturday 12 October 2019
