Upcoming Exhibitions and Installations

Same Like Yesterday

 

In 2019 ‘Same Like Yesterday – Virkuthalypila and Other Stories from Our Country’ opens at the Art Gallery of South Australia as part of the DreamBIG Children’s Festival.

Same Like Yesterday is a story about six senior Adnyamathanha women and two teenage girls travelling through the Flinders Ranges in the footsteps of Virlkuthalypila, the two women from the Yuramuda (Dreamtime). The project involved SharingStories artists in a longer-term creative practice and allowed for learning through experimentation, creative risk taking & greater capacity for refining & expanding stories that require multiple trips on country to support community reflection & remembering as a group. The final work is a unique form of visual storytelling involving drawing, animation, projection & performance to create a large-scale 3-dimensional projection performance, best described as gigantic paper pop-up books that come to life.

The Frog and Brolga

 

SharingStories is currently working with the Gija Community and WA New Museum to create an interactive Display exploring the story of the Frog and Brolga, a major Creation story for the Gija community relating to Purnululu. The Display will house language, videos, art work, animations, drone footage and soundscapes in an interactive map interface and will be housed in the Museum’s Continuous Cultures Gallery from 2020 as part of the new permanent installation.

We are also partnering with the Jaara community and Castlemaine Art Gallery to install an interactive Display Panel housing rich cultural content relating to the Jaara story of The Eagle, The Crow and The Bat. The work was originally led by senior cultural custodian Uncle Brien Nelson and then by his son Uncle Rick Nelson.
