Bunyarra Creative Collective
Back to Balance – Elemental Energy : Aboriginal perspectives of Global Warming
A team of local Aboriginal artists from Bunyarra Culture Collective will work under the guidance of Anne Leon to create a series of pennant flags, 3 metres long (16 flags). The pennant flags will be installed on 6 metre bamboo poles. The flags will be created employing the medium of hand painted silk. Each flag will contribute to telling the story of the Aboriginal perspectives of Global Warming and its impact on the earth and all of us. The elements are out of balance and our artwork will represent our journey from harmony to chaos and back to balance again. Working with colour and symbolism to reflect traditional story telling elements combined with modern medium and vibrant colours of silk painting, this collaboration will explore the global crisis of our life time. The pennant flags will form a visual expression for Bunyarra Culture Collective to present traditional and contemporary storytelling, through painted silk, flying in the breeze, for the duration of the music festival.
