Thanks for these https://vimeo.com/user10846257/videos
The flavour here is consistent with the elements of Yama.
I think that one or two G+ Hangout meetings over the next months would
be wonderful- to discuss the ideas and issues raised by the work in the
A recent survey of Furtherfield audiences/participants (we will be
coming for you soon NBers;) has shown an appetite for more debate and
I think it would provide a wonderful opportunity to think about
collaboration across national borders and cultural identities
....profoundly pertinent to us European Brits - who now feel like
foreigners in our own land : (

>> Hi Everyone,
>> Last Friday we opened an exhibition curated by Gretta Louw, and
>> featuring /Yama/, an installation she has made in collaboration with
>> Neil Jupurrurla Cook, the Artistic Director of the Warnayaka Art
>> Centre, along with other artists and members of the Warlpiri people
>> of Lajamanu, in Central Australia.
>> With the Warnayaka Art Centre, over 4 or 5 years Gretta has formed an
>> extraordinary artistic bridge- the Yama installation is fun,
>> delicious, respectful, bold and provocative, in the face of social,
>> political and environmental stress, and an exchange fraught with
>> potential ethical and etiquett-ical bear-traps.
>> <Mail Attachment.jpeg>
>> Here is a photo by Michael Erglis of the Yama installation at
>> Furtherfield Gallery.
>> The exhibition also features work by 5 other Australian artists of
>> diverse heritages.
>> On Saturday Gretta led a tour of the exhibition. Then Warlpiri
>> educator Steve Jampijimpa Patrick talked about the work in the
>> context of the five pillars of Warlpiri culture. You can watch the
>> short video that he showed here on Youtube
>> The discussion of "so called technology" pursued questions of:
>> cultural continuity, churn and loss; in contrast with stories said to
>> pre-date humans; medium-message relations (McLuhan-stylee), the
>> opportunities and threats of openness and sharing in amongst the
>> global flows of capital in the network age.
>> I noticed as Jampijimpa drew in the sand, how his drawing resonated
>> with the network diagrams that have informed and shaped our work at
>> Furtherfield for the last 20 years, our understanding of the
>> importance of connectedness and especially our DIWO campaign.
>> Here you can see the Warnayaka 'logo' incorporated into our new DIWO
>> <Mail Attachment.png>
>> I cannot properly convey the full impact that these meetings and
>> events are having on me and the other people who have attended. It is
>> unfolding slowly, in unexpected ways. (/Yama/, is a Warlpiri word
>> translates as 'reflection'- sky to land, inward to outward, shadow
>> falling from object across another object). I will write more with
>> more reflections as they arise and as I talk to others.
>> I urge you to see the exhibition if you can. And to talk to Gretta.
>> We'll post images from the exhibition very soon.
