Group Exhibition: Deadly: In-between heaven and hell - Art Collector

Keith Stevens and Ginger Wikilyiri, Piltati, 2011. Synthetic polymer paint on linen, 200 x 400cm


Presented by Tandanya NACI and Adelaide Festival and featuring eight leading Australian Aboriginal artists and collectives, with paintings, sculptures and installations, moving image, fibre, found objects and glass. The term ‘deadly’ is used in the mainstream as meaning lethal and dangerous; for Aboriginal Australians it affirms splendour. This provocative new survey will explore the in-between space – hovering between dystopian nightmare and utopian dream.

Featured artists have been commissioned to create new work, specific to notions outlined in the curatorial rationale.

Featured artists include Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Julie Gough, Beaver Lennon, Trevor Nickolls, Sandra Saunders, Yhonnie Scarce, Tjanpi Desert Weavers, Nyurpaya Kaika, Naomi Kantjuriny, Ilawanti Ungkutjuru Ken, Paniny Mick, Yaritji Young Niningka Lewis, Tjunkaya Tapaya, Rene Kulitja, Tjungu Palya, Keith Stevens and Ginger Wilkilyiri.
