The journey carries on.
Investigating the relationship between our environment and our inner lives, on our walkabouts, we crossed Chatwin’s Songlines. Drawing mental maps transmitted through ritual songs, aborigines wander along ancient boundaries, pathways and lines that criss-cross their enormous country. Their nomadic way of life is under threat. The endless struggle to protect their ancient rites and traditions is an on-going fight.
Looking for ancestors’ footprints and keeping creational myths alive with these songs is not only representational, but it also takes part in the creative process itself: rocks, people, animals and trees become alive.
