Tjuntjuntjara: Recent works from Spinifex Country
East of Kalgoorlie, running down to the Great Australian Bight, is some of the most remote country in the world, this is Spinifex Country, home to traditional country men and woman (including the last family to walk out of the desert in 1986). The art is made in country on site of many of the stories, and embodies a rich and long unbroken cultural practice and tradition. The energy of the desert country, and the intimate understanding and knowledge of each place, is immediately felt. Each work is laden with a presence a raw power which transcends culture and language. Short St Gallery is proud to present this unique and enlightening exhibition.
