I was lucky enough yesterday to go the opening night of Woman with Clever Hands.
Here are just a couple of pictures of the pandanas mats from the exhibition. They are about 2 meters in diameter! Object has quite a small exhibition space but it has a beautiful curved large white wall and it is here that about 6 of these intricate weavings have been placed - it is quite simply, beautiful.
Women with Clever Hands: Gapuwiyak Miyalkurruwurr Gong Djambatjmala is an exhibition of the fibre work made by women from Gapuwiyak in Arnhem Land. Gapuwiyak (Lake Evella) is an inland community on the Gove peninsula established in 1969, situated on the northern shore of a small body of water, Lake Evella.
