Teho Ropeyarn - Ulada Ikya Ami (Listening to Beforetime Stories)

24 June - 19 August 2017

Gallery One

Ulada Ikya Ami (Listening to Beforetime Stories) presents an overview of Injinoo culture and history from Northern Cape York Peninsula. Large-scale print works reveal narratives from dreamtime, to colonisation, and into the current era. The cultural knowledge of the Gudang, Angkamuthi, Yadhaykana and Atambaya nations of Northern Cape York Peninsula, and their interconnectedness as Injinoo people, is showcased through the works that highlight the internal and external impacts of culture through myths, legends, historic rock art, and spirituality.
