Will we swim together tomorrow through the saltwater waves?

7 November – 1 December 2018

In November we present our second solo show with Quandamooka artist, Elisa Jane Carmichael. This exhibition will coincide with her inclusion in APT9 at QAGOMA. Will we swim together tomorrow through the Saltwater waves? honours the natural and seasonal elements of Quandamooka country which have formed the environment for thousands of years. Through paintings and woven mediums, Elisa Jane Carmichael reflects on visual ancestral experiences of Quandamooka Bujong Djara (Mother Earth) to share the beauty, power, and importance of Minjerribah yesterday, today and tomorrow, ngayigany, ngayiganya, ngayigawa (seen, seeing, will see.)
