Tonight we’re at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (@artgalleryofnsw), and Seb is introducing us to the installation by The Mulka Project (@mulkaproject). “Our mission is to sustain and protect Yolŋu cultural knowledge in Northeast Arnhem Land under the leadership of community elders. The Mulka production house, recording studio, digital learning centre and cultural archive are managed by Yolŋu law and governance.” - The Mulka Project • Video description: This video begins with Seb standing in front of a red wall speaking about the artwork. The camera then moves into the exhibition space. There is a white pole structure in the centre of the room, moving images are projected onto it. There are full length wall projections across three walls. The first scene projected is of a river and mangroves. There are also scenes of beaches. The final scene projected is of the sun sitting over the ocean. The screen then transitions to a a flood of bright coloured diamond shapes filling the screen, and the projection ends. • ‘Watami Manikay’ (Song of the Winds) 2020, gaḏayka (stringy bark), gapaṉ (white clay), djarraṯawun (light), and rirrakay (sound).
