Wominjeka: A New Beginning celebrates 30 years of the Koorie Heritage Trust. This project highlights cultural continuities alongside new modes of creative practice in the work of five cross-generational early career artists; Georgia MacGuire, Aunty Marlene Gilson, Mitch Mahoney, Josh Muir and Raymond Young.Each of the participating artists has developed new work in dialogue with the Trust’s significant collections of objects, artworks, archives and oral histories – each identifying objects and artifacts that share or spark a connection with their own artistic practice, personal or cultural enquiry. Over a three-month period the artists worked alongside senior mentors; Maree Clarke, Lee Darroch, Ray Thomas and Peter Waples-Crowe to explore the Trust’s Collections and to develop new works in dialogue with the past.The exhibition presents this new work alongside the objects of inspiration from the Trust’s collection. Exhibited works utilise a broad array of media, materials and techniques including; painting, animal skin cloaks and textiles, bark and feather flowers, clay shields and digital prints.Exhibition coordinator: Jan Duffy, Koorie Heritage Trust
