Outline

This exhibition sees four artists illuminate the saltwater estate of Rulyapa—part of the ocean between Yirrkala and Dhambaliya (Bremer Island), in North-East Arnhem Land. The artists merge tradition with knowledge that is as solid as a rock: the patterns that show their obligations and the raw kinetic power of water. These obligations now converge with global existential frames of ecocide and rising mean sea levels.
