Going Out

Going Out

1 September - 29 October '17

Food gathering continues to be an important part of intergenerational passing on of traditional knowledge for Indigenous people.

Going out brings together works by a number of artists that explore and interpret how native plants continue to be used for their medicinal properties, as a food source, and in traditional ceremonies.

Native food, plants and flowers traditionally gathered by women include nuts, wild banana vine, wild cucumber, various types of wild yam, berries, seed lilies, and native fruits including quandong, jam jam, maratah, wild apricot, and assorted leaves used for cooking and medicinal purposes.

Going out also includes a selection of intricately woven baskets and bags used by women in the gathering and preparation of native food and plants for cooking and storing.

Artists represented in the exhibition include Delissa Walker (a finalist in the 2017 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards), Cathy Snow, Edna Ambrym, Heather Koowootha, Delvine Richards, Dorothy Edwards, Michelle Yeatman, Rhonda Brim and Sandra Jerry.

Going out is one in a series of exhibitions developed by the Gallery to promote and support the production of exemplary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander craft and design in Far North Queensland.
