This International Women's Day we continue celebrating the talent of DJIRRIRRA YUKUWA WUNUŊMURRA whose artworks are on display in our Sydney & Berlin galleries.

Djirrirra (also known as Yukuwa) assisted her father, Yanggarriny Wunungmurra (1932-2003), in his artistic practice for several years up until his death. Her father granted her the authority to paint his clan design whilst he was alive and her precise hand and geometric style has increasingly attracted enthusiastic interest from the art world.

She has lived at the remote homeland of Gangan since she was born in the 1960's and has three children.

In the work of Djirrirra Yukuwa Wunuŋmurra we see the uncommon meeting of two profoundly distinct stylistic approaches.

Grounded in one hand by the continuation of a sacred geometric clan design (Buyku), and in the other, by a declaration of self through a complex, personal, floral motif (Yukuwa).

The concurrent designs invite the viewer to comprehend ideas around identities enclosed in Yolŋu philosophical framework. Yolŋu world view is holistic, where every element is connected. Individuals are connected to country, art to ceremony, and dance to song.

The stories of each clan are embodied in their miny'tji (clan design) passed down from generation to generation.

On view in Sydney & Berlin until March 27

04/03/2022

The Larrakitj, memorial pole, had its traditional use for the Yolŋu people of north east Arnhem Land as an ossuary or bone container erected as a memorial to a dead kinsman.

After death the body of the deceased was often ceremonially placed on a raised platform and left to the elements for an appropriate time until the next stage of the ritual.

The bones of the deceased would then be placed within the termite hollowed memorial pole for final resting. The mortuary ritual would then end with the placement of the Larrakitj, containing the bones, standing in the bush. Over time the Larrakitj and its contents would return to mother earth.

Even once sedentary mission communities were established in Arnhem Land, Larrakitj continue to be produced as the equivalent of headstones or to contain the personal effects of a deceased, and to share instructional tools for younger generations.

DJIRRIRRA YUKUWA WUNUŊMURRA is a Yolŋu woman, working in the Northern Territory with Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Arts Centre.

The sacred art of this region details the spiritual forces behind the ongoing Creation and continuing identity of the fresh and saltwater country of the Miwatj region. Pictured here are some of the landscapes that are home to the clans of the Miwatj.

Mangrove beaches, shallow bays & stringybark forested hills.

The Buyku miny’tji (clan design) is an intricate diamond pattern; gridded, angular and mathematically precise. It is the Dhalwaŋu clan design of the Yirritja moiety, shimmering water falling from a great ancestral being.

Djirrirra Yukuwa Wunuŋmurra's practice features an uncommon meeting of two profoundly distinct stylistic approaches. One of which is Bukyu, pictured here, a continuation of a sacred geometric clan design.

The Buyku miny’tji (clan design) is an intricate diamond pattern; gridded, angular and mathematically precise. It is the Dhalwaŋu clan design of the Yirritja moiety, shimmering water falling from a great ancestral being.

A design given to the artist by her father, the renowned artist and Dhalwaŋu clan leader, Yaŋgarriny Wunuŋmurra (1932–2003).

PARIS REPORT from Berlin Gallery Manager, Tom Austin:

It was fantastic to see the extent of Australian and Oceanic art on show in Paris over the last week. From Gagosian's selling exhibition of Emily Kame Kngwarreye's paintings, to Christie's debut auction of contemporary Oceanic art, or the permanent collection of the renowned Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac.

'OCEANIA NOW: Contemporary Art from Pacific' is a joint curation by Christie's African & Oceanic Art and Post-War & Contemporary Art departments. It is their first dedicated auction of contemporary artists from the Pacific, and marks an important effort to recontextualise art traditionally marketed as 'outsider' or 'ethnographic', as the dynamic, living school it is.

Just across the Seine and a ride along the Left Bank are the dimly lit halls of the Musée du quai Branly. It is home to 370,000 objects from Africa, the Near East, Asia, Oceania and the Americas – a consolidation of several historic museums.

Along with works dating back several thousand years from across the world, are a collection of exceptional paintings and larakitj by Aboriginal artists including Rover Thomas, Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, John Mawurndjul, George Tjungurrayi, and Kathleen Petyarre.

From Gagosian to Musée du quai Branly, most striking about these displays were their differing approaches to the subject material, and all show that Europe is willingly coming to terms with 20th- and 21st-century Australian and Pacific art as the lively, contemporary artform it is.

In the work of DJIRRIRRA YUKUWA WUNUŊMURRA Yukuwa we see the uncommon meeting of two profoundly distinct stylistic approaches.

Two separate parts to the whole forming a complex portrait of the artist; grounded in one hand by the continuation of a sacred geometric clan design (Buyku, pictured here), and in the other, by a declaration of self through a complex, personal, floral motif (Yukuwa, see Thursday's post).

Stylistically opposed but intertwined within the artist, exploring the sacred narratives of her self, clan, moiety and nation.

ON VIEW NOW at Michael Reid Berlin: 'Works on Paper from West Arnhem Land' from INJALAK ARTS 'In the small west Arnhem land community of Gunbalanya, hundreds of ancient artworks exist alongside modern life. The community was formally a mission known as Oenpelli, but at Injalak Hill, the region's ancient history is inscribed on its rock walls. The region is home to the world's longest continuous artistic tradition..."These paintings are thousands of years old. People used to come here in wet season times and stay for six months until the wet season stopped, and they'd go down." - local artist Benson Nagurrgurrba Mr Nagurrgurrba said that artists would explain their dreamtime stories and life lessons to children as they painted. While some of the paintings date back more than 30,000 years, others were drawn more recently.' from @abcnews_au Discover more about INJALAK ARTS & the history of the area in which these artists still practice today: Michael Reid Berlin Injalak Arts Gunbalanya #michaelreidberlin #injalakarts #rockart #indigenousaustralianart #gunbalanya
Michael Reid Berlin is commencing its 2022 programme with the international debut of INJALAK ARTS! 'Works on Paper from Western Arnhem Land' is on view in the Gallery and online until February 26. Located in the town of Gunbalanya, 10km from the East Alligator River and the border of Kakadu National Park, the artists here draw inspiration from the extraordinary wealth of rock art West Arnhem Land has to offer. Celebrating the traditions and imagery of the Bininj people, the eight works on paper in this show epitomise the clean lines, exceptional detail and saturation of natural colour for which Injalak artists are known.
