Free Event

Presented by Outstation – Art from Art Centres in association with Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre

Experience a collection of works from Mulkuṉ Wirrpanda.

An independent creative from Northeast Arnhem Land Mulkuṉ Wirrpanda works through the community run Indigenous artist’s collective Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre at Yirrkala. She paints Dhudi-djapu miny’tji (sacred clan design) that depicts her land at Dhuruputjpi. She paints on bark, larrakitj (memorial poles) and yidaki and is a talented carver, weaver and print maker whose work has been exhibited throughout Australia and in Asia.

This show is the latest step along a unique pathway that she has pursued over the last ten years. A meeting with senior non-Indigenous artist John Wolseley in 2011 at an artist gathering at Yilpara on Blue Mud Bay organised by Nomad Art Projects has set in train a journey that has led to Guṉḏirr.
