A Walk Through Garranjini is an entrancing exhibition from Aboriginal artist, Ryhia Dank (Nardurna), taking audiences on an artistic journey with her ancestors. Her work is inspired specifically by the three women who came from the ocean near Ngukurr in the Gulf of Carpentaria, travelling long distances to create their place; the hills and freshwater Country.
On display are over 30 original works of varying sizes, using a modern style resulting in vibrant multi-coloured paintings that hark back to traditional Indigenous art. The Gudanji/Wakaja people told stories through pattern and design, and Ryhia calls her own storying ‘Nardurna’, meaning ‘woman’ in their language.
Showing in the lobby of Sydney’s Liberty Place from 4 July to 6 August, A Walk Through Garranjini is in celebration of NAIDOC Week 2022 with its theme of ‘Get up! Stand up! Show up!’
A Walk Through Garranjini is presented by Liberty Place, and curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery (an initiative of Wiltshire + Dimas Management).
