Cover image for 'Kun-waral: spirit shadows'


Kun-waral, a collaboration between Bábbarra Women’s Centre and Maningrida Arts & Culture, refers to the shadow or memory of powerful beings who transformed as they moved across country, before humans arrived.

In the same way, the artists in this show transform and move across artistic mediums, presenting Japanese woodblock prints, etchings, linocuts on fabric and pandanus woven panels.

The figures depicted in this exhibition are from over five Arnhem Land language groups and cross multiple clan estates. Artists include Deborah Wurrkidj, Janet Marawarr, Lucy Yarawanga, Jennifer Wurrkidj and Carol Campion.
