Description

In this exhibition: Nijiniji (Connection in Yawuru) – Awaken your senses with Yawuru speaker, choreographer, and Co-Artistic Director of contemporary dance group Marrugeku, Dalisa Pigram. Watch as she performs her interpretation of what it means for our physical bodies to be ‘joined’ to our emotions: “like bark to a tree”. Martine Perret collaborated with Dalisa and composer Jonathan Mustard to create this unique three-part video. Mitchee Youp Bullargar (Coming Together) – Explore a collection of traditional and ceremonial objects from Vivian Brockman Webb’s family collection. Vivian (aka Dwardinan) is a Matriarch Elder from the Margaret River region in Western Australia. Step through a series of video installations, as Vivian shares her deep knowledge of Country, traditional land management and the importance of what we leave behind which is inspired by her late father’s book Nunyahboogera – My land. About the artist Martine Perret is an award-winning photographic artist who was born in Paris, and now works and lives in Margaret River, Western Australia. Known for her startlingly beautiful portrayal of the Western Australian landscape, she uses aerial photography and portraiture to tell important stories of our times. Martine’s approach to her artistic work is based on a career in photojournalism, including 10 years covering United Nations peacekeeping missions in conflict zones in South Sudan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi and Timor-Leste. During her time in West Africa, Martine documented the Ebola crisis. Her recent projects Ngala Wongga (Come Talk) – Cultural Significance of Languages in the Goldfields and Belong – Language connecting feeling, culture, country highlight the importance of First Nations' languages and exemplify Martine’s approach to storytelling. Martine’s immersive gallery installations feature her signature aerial landscapes, portraits, lighting, and soundscapes.
