Event Details:

Akaburrakajinama (meaning ‘Lights On’ in the Anindilyakwa language spoken in the Groote Eylandt archipelago) is a striking showcase of the innovation and diversity of practice of Anindilyakwa artists. An exhibition which brings the natural palette and subtle aesthetic already so popular across their much-loved bush dyed jewellery and quintessential scarf ranges, to intriguing and unique statement homewares that will surprise and delight. The full Akaburrakajinama collection is available through Aboriginal Bush Traders website.

“We are sharing our world. When you sit in that bush dye chair or sleep in the blanket, even if you have never been to our island, you can feel something. The spirit from the old people. You can learn about our culture.” Vera Lalara, Anindilyakwa artist.
