10 July - 10 September As part of the NAIDOC celebrations, Martumili Artists present, Paper Wangka (Paper Story) curated by Corban Clause Williams, Sylvia Wilson, and Robina Clause An exhibition showcasing never seen before works on paper from established and emerging Martumili Artists. Corban, Sylvia and Robina worked round the clock with PAM (Proffessional Arts Management) to curate and install this very special exhibition, unearthing treasures from the Martumili archives. “Without the people, Country will be lost; and without the Country, people will be lost.” - Curtis Taylor “When you haven’t done something like this before it’s just that flower within you just opens up. The suppressed artist in me got so excited, emotional and nervous to learn. We had good team work, it’s a key part of being Martu. We took our time didn’t rush, it was subtle. We had a good flow of energy to get it all up on the walls. There’s a lot of support here it’s a safe space. This exhibition is showcasing all the variety of artists here.” -Sylvia Wilson explaining her first install experience at Martumili, Paper Wangka (Paper Story) For Martu, Country sustains life, and to care for Country is an essential part of living. This is done through land management practices that are thousands of years old, such as fire burning, which continues to be carried out as both an aid for hunting and a means of land management. During the pujiman (traditional, desert-dwelling) period, Martu would traverse very large distances annually in small family groups, moving seasonally from water source to water source, and hunting and gathering bush tucker as they went. At this time, one’s survival depended on their intimate knowledge of the location of resources. Martu care for Country ongoingly, through ranger work, research work, and artwork. Martu document traditional ecological knowledge of their Country in their artworks, archiving and passing on important information to future generations, and to the wider community. This NAIDOC, Martumili celebrate the ongoing commitment that Martu have to Heal Country for now and into the future. Sales enquiries: Martumili@eastpilbara.com.au or phone 08 91751020
