a title which evokes images of endless sandy beaches, of deep-blue waters, of atolls, archipelagos, peninsulas and coral reefs – and of green and luscious nature and mysterious virgin forests.

Date : Currently open everyday for pre-booked guided visits only. 


Are included in this exhibition:

  • Melville and Bathurst Islands, home to the Tiwi people;
  • Elcho Island, part of North East Arnhem Land and home to the Yolngu people;
  • Bentinck and Mornington Islands in the Gulf of Carpentaria;
  • Torres Strait Islands, situated between Australia and Papua New Guinea;
  • Lockhart River on the east coast of Cape York Peninsula;
  • Daly River near Darwin;
  • Pormpuraaw on the west coast of Cape York Peninsula, Gulf of Carpentaria.

These are islands and peninsulas of different sizes, shapes and nature but common to them all is their rich heritage and their thousands of years’ tradition. The result is an exhibition full of great diversity, enhanced by the artists’ idiosyncratic interpretation of their ancient culture.

The 18th Century Barn of the Château d’Ivernois

Built in 1721, the barn (grange in French) is an annex of the Château d’Ivernois. Its new owner, the Burkhardt-Felder Foundation Arts and Culture spent four years restoring it.

The building’s original structure was carefully maintained. One of its particularities is a beam of 18.22 meters, the longest found in the area of Neuchâtel.

Inaugurated in 2008, the museum, christened “La grange”, serves to accommodate and exhibit the Foundation’s Aboriginal art collection from Australia.

This enchanting space is now filled with the mysteries and the spirituality that emanate from the works of contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists.
