Pieces of Me - Teena Moffatt
Register for the exhibition launch - Saturday 1 July 1pm
We are proud to present Pieces of Me, a solo exhibition by Hume-based Yorta Yorta, Gunaikurnai, Gunditjmara artist Teena Moffatt.
Pieces of Me explores themes of identity, family and home inspired by Teena’s ancestral stories and presented in variety of traditional and contemporary media. From possum skin burrai (baby carriers) adorned with ochre, to traditional woven baskets and totem stories depicted as visual elliptical narratives in bright colors on canvas, Teena feels that her work is guided from a deep place of her dreaming. Her art becomes the modality that enables her to communicate, connect and share her knowledge across generations, mixing the old with the new.
“My art connects my past, present and future. I do in honour of my grandmothers and grandfathers, my family and my bloodlines; to ensure my children feel a strong connection to their people and traditional ways."
Pieces of Me will be launched in the lead up to NAIDOC Week and will be showing until Sunday 27 August.
