Angidjatjiya

The Angidjatjiya was the focus of our June 2018 weaving camp. The camp ran over 10 days and was an opportunity for Bonnie and Freda to share their skills and knowledge with fellow artists whilst creating this piece on their country at Yilan.

Bonnie and Freda, both traditional owners of Yurrwi (Milingimbi), invited their fellow artists to join them on their homeland at Yilan (situated on the coast of the Arnhem Land mainland). Yilan has intimate connection through songline and kinship to Langarra (Howard Island – the homeland of the majority of artists present) as well as Yurrwi. these seemingly dispart places are bound together by the Raki (string) that is carried by the … (trevalli) as he swims between.

Over the 10 days that the piece was made different aspects of the story and role of Angidjatjiya as a functional and aesthetic object as well as totem and dreaming were shared. The following document outlines the artists process.
