Drawn from the Araluen Collection this exhibition explores the significance of Country to Aboriginal people and provides an opportunity to reflect on the ways Aboriginal artists understand and present their Country through art. It also highlights how the act of art making provides a medium for maintaining an ongoing connection to Country and to the Altyerre in Arrernte or Tjukurpa in Western Desert languages – that is the time when great Creator beings travelled the earth shaping its forms, its stories and ceremonies and the Law; the foundation of Aboriginal life.
