Tracing art through years

first_imgThe Australian Government has come up with an exhibition Yiwarra Kuju that displays Aboriginal art from Australia’s western desert.The show presents a selection of works created by aboriginal artists who travelled along the 1850km stock route on a six week intensive engagement with their country. The art of the Canning Stock Route has its origins in the traditional sacred art of Aboriginal people of the Western Desert. Artists combine symbols, such as concentric circles, bars, footprints, horseshoe shapes and lines, to convey sacred stories.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Prior to Western contact, most art was produced in ceremonial contexts as body decoration, sand sculptures, ceremonial objects and rock art. Paints, made from ochres and charcoal, were augmented by the use of bird feathers and down. Today’s artists use traditional methods to express a personal style, telling more individualistic, often secular histories that continue to be informed by traditional practices, and often with an undercurrent of the sacred world. The works in Yiwarra Kuju largely reflect this development of personal style.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe Canning Stock Route is a cattle route established in the early 1900s to allow for the expansion of the pastoral industry. The stock route crossed lands that had been occupied for millennia by Aboriginal people, and regularly spaced wells were built over traditional soaks and springs that were vital to the survival of those communities.The meeting of aboriginal people and European surveyors and pastoralist that took place as a result of the opening up of the Canning Stock Route was initially violent. Eventually, the land and its resources came to be shared, to the extent that many Aboriginal people began to work on remote cattle stations and along the stock route. Today a number of aboriginal communities lie on, or near, the old stock route, and a vigorous art movement flourishes in these communities.Where: DLF Place, SaketWhen: On till 20Time: 11 AM to 9 PMlast_img read more
