Sea HER Land

  • Benalla Art Gallery Botanical Gardens, Bridge St Benalla, VIC 3672 Australia (map)

Inspired by this year’s NAIDOC theme ‘Because of Her, We Can’, Sea HER Land showcases a rich quality and diverse range of works made entirely from natural materials by six of Baluk Arts’ key female Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. Exquisite works made from materials such as bull kelp, shells, bones, clay, wool, wood, assorted fibres, river reed and feathers honour mother earth and evoke memories of personal history. Each artist has a strong connection to the material they have utilised in their work, whether it be from the sea or the land. It is HER story, which has been cradled in the form of a vessel, to encapsulate the essence of protection and strength.


Artists: Tallara Gray, Cassie Leatham, Gillian Garvie, Beverley Meldrum, Nannette Shaw, and Lisa Waup. Curated by Lisa Waup.
