Vicki Couzens and Teho Ropeyarn: Before time: Angkamuthi meets Gunditjmara

December 7, 2020 - February 28, 2021

Vicki Couzens, Ponponpoorramook, 2007. Hand-coloured etching (left); and Teho Ropeyarn, Uyinthayn, 2017. Ink, mixed media vinylcut print with acrylic wash on paper (right).

Rich in story and tradition, linocut prints and etchings by Angkamuthi-born artist Teho Ropeyarn and Gunditjmara-born artist Vicki Couzens have been brought together for the first time by Wemba Wemba artist and curator Kelly Koumalatsos.

Both artists echo deep connections with their cultures — Ropeyarn draws on the traditions of the Angkamuthi and Yadhaykana clan groups from Cape York Peninsula in Queensland and Couzens portrays imagery from her Gunditjmara heritage, the traditional owners of the Victorian region near Warrnambool. In bringing these two geographically disparate artists together curator Koumalatsos bridges the usual north-south divide through presenting connections found within the stories and the visual imagery.

The gallery is open and practicing social distancing measures.
