This photograph is from a series of conceptual ephemeral earth based works Kunga, and references Country and place.
Gangga is a Yugambeh word meaning both ‘to call out’ and ‘to hear’. Ganggullanji means thinking.
In Tallebudgera creek, with my children holding the present and the ongoing connections of our Quandamooka Ancestors, the paths they have trodden and their relationship with this Yugambeh country and its people I understand through Gangga and Ganggullanji.
In the tides, I’m within a continual process of re-calling – re-hearing- re-mapping – re-contextualising – de-colonising and re-instating on country that which was denied. Calling out and hearing the intergenerational memories and maps already within.
