Lak-Lak: The colours of Laŋani Marika

6.00pm Sat

Art House

This exhibition opens 6pm, Saturday 23 September.

Master weaver and colour dyer Laŋani Marika, the most senior elder of the Rirratjiŋu clan, imparts her colour knowledge to the generations of tomorrow in this 6 piece video installation by The Mulka Project of Northeast Arnhem Land.

Created by two accomplished Yolŋu cinematographers, Patrina Munuŋgurr & Gayili Yunupiŋu, this exhibition weaves together Laŋani’s alchemy, art, and ethnobotony with vibrancy and colour. This collection of knowledge now permanently resides within The Mulka Project’s Yolŋu owned archives in Yirrkala but will be on display to the public for a short time over the Darwin International Film Festival.
