Dhomala Dhäwu: Makassan Sail Stories
Ipeh Nuh, Pusar (Tubuh dan perjalanan series), 2019, pen on paper, 50 cm x 35 cm
Drawing on extensive research on Makassan voyages to northern Australia the exhibition presents a poetic dimension on cultural contact over centuries between great civilisations, as seen through the work of visual artists Margaret Rarru and Ipeh Nur who have incorporated these issues into their work, as documents and re-constructions.
