Exhibition and Shows

Blak Dot is proud to present the first of their celebrations for this year’s 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages.

‘Laka-Wan Ngeerang Woorroong’

‘Laka-Wan Ngeerang Woorroong’ is a family exhibition that ‘speaks’ their ‘Mother Tongue’. The two families that are sharing their stories, the Bundle Mob of the Yuin and the Gunditjmara Couzens, are connected through kinship and blood. Walking in the footsteps of their Ancestors, continuing creative cultural expression across both contemporary and traditional media. Together these families will come together to share their collective learning’s of language.

Artist brief was ‘To create works that ‘speaks’ their ‘Mother Tongue’ Language. Through this they will learn, retain and create future use of their language. Each was asked to find a word or two in their language and create an artwork that ‘spoke’ to that word. Some family members are practicing artists, some family members say they aren’t (but should be), together they share their language learning’s and family stories in an amazing, eclectic and deeply meaningful collection of works and ceremony.
