Country Calling | Nunami Sculthorpe-Green

As part of ngayapi niyakara (Born To Dream)

Drawings: Nunami Sculthrope-Green, Images: Remi Chauvin

This work was created to reunite a cultural landscape.
A landscape that has been divided into sites and parcels.

A landscape still connected by story.
Stories told, stories left. Stories of family, community and gathering.
Of deep bags and freshwater to follow. Of fires and shells up the hill.
Stories of quarries, tools, hunting and kangaroo.
Mumirimina stories that Palawa still tell. Palawa stories that continue.

There are chimes at both piyura kitina and Bedlam Walls.
The chimes bear the marks of the landscape.
Imprinted with plant, stone, ash and earth.

The chimes, made from one place, brought to the other.
Hear piyura kitina and Bedlam Walls reunited with sound.
They sound for each other and they sound together.
Hear in the chiming the story of one landscape,
one journey across Mumirimina Country made many times.

Nunami Sculthorpe-Green is a Palawa Warlpiri storyteller from nipaluna, well known for ‘takara nipaluna’.
‘Country Calling’ is a work that is made of, and for, Aboriginal Land.

ngayapi niyakara (Born To Dream) is a partnership between the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre (TAC) and Constance Artist Run Initiative that provides a paid opportunity for emerging Aboriginal artists based in lutruwita (Tasmania) to present new temporary artworks in an outdoor public space of their choice anywhere in lutruwita. Assisted through Arts Tasmania. 

Constance ARI works across Country cared for by the Palawa of lutruwita and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout the so called ‘Australia’, as well as First Nations people from elsewhere, and their deep connection to the lands, skies and waterways over which sovereignty was never ceded.  We pay our respect to all Elders; we are grateful for their continued sharing of knowledge and Culture.
