Exhibition SKY AND DESERT

SKY AND DESERT

Featuring artworks of more than 40 different artists from the Australian desert. 

Date : 2013-2015

It is in the far remoteness of the desert where the contemporary Aboriginal art movement began. This exhibition is a celebration of artists who started to paint on canvas late in life to transmit ancient knowledge to their descendants in a more lasting way. Works of young artists, wanting to perpetuate the traditions of their people, are equally exhibited, surprising us with their technique and their innovation. The colours of this exhibition are rich and intense, reminding us of the desert, its burnt soil, its infinite vastness, its richness in myths and legends and site of ancestors’ travels. Compounding this energy is the fascination of the Aboriginal people with the cosmos, the importance of stars in their daily life, their interpretation of the universe, the mythological significance of the Southern Cross. Amongst the artworks presented is a canvas 7 m long, showing the night sky of the Southern Hemisphere. Canvasses of this size painted by one person only are rather rare. Generally, these are the result of collaborative efforts by several artists.
