Presented by Salon Art Projects in association with Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre
In the past/present/future the Guwak ancestral beings led the Mangalili people to their new home at Djarrakpi (Cape Shield). Having seen the people settled, the Guwak men sang their own journey, paddling out to sea along the Milŋiyawuy River where they were drowned by a huge tidal wave, to a place in the sky where they become stars which would shine out of the night sky. This River of Stars is the astral version of the Milŋiyawuy River and known in English as the Milky Way.
As a multi-awarded artist Naminapu Maymuru-White stands beside her siblings Baluka and Galuma Maymuru and their fathers Narritjin and Nanyin Maymuru as one of Australia’s first families of art. In this exhibition she portrays the River of Stars in her paintings.
