SOUNDS OF COUNTRY

9 July – 2 October 2016
Gallery 3

 

Sounds of Country includes works by indigenous artists who currently live in Gippsland: Uncle Dennis Seymour, Aunty Gloria Whalan, Aunty Eileen Harrison, Irene Ridgeway, Lisa Kennedy, Patrice Muthaymiles Mahoney, Mick Harding and Ronald Edwards.

The exhibition explores the Indigenous concept of Deep Listening to Country, revealing the profound sense of connection the artists have to natural world and the land. Those who engage with the artworks in the exhibition are invited to explore inner and outer worlds through song, story, image, language and the silence that lies between.

The artists in Sounds of Country present different perspectives and shown together, a network of connections are revealed. Working across a range of mediums, the artists have created works that resonate with sonic energy, connecting people to Country and the Country to people.
