LEI IT ON
24 June - 27 August '17

Lei it on presents a collection of contemporary lei and body adornment made by Torres Strait Islander communities in workshops held on Thursday Island, Saibai Island, Erub (Darnley Island), Mer (Murray Island), Mua (Moa Island) and Badu in early 2017.

The lei's intrinsic connection to place and identify is evident in the use of materials and techniques, both customary and new. Embracing materials ranging from natural resources, such as shells, feather, seeds and plant fibre through to found objects, recycled materials and plastic, these artists are transforming the way we see the lei and its connection to country, culture and the community.

A collaboration between Cairns Art Gallery and National Gallery of Victoria, supported by Gabi Titui Cultural Centre
