This is not a ticketed event

Once again, the wisdom of First Peoples cuts through illusion to remind us of the bigger picture and warn us of the error of our ways. Revealing the harsh but necessary truth about where the path of human civilisation is heading, ancestors, elders and country possess the tools to guide us through the civilised psychosis that is modern living.

Across two sites (sunset and sunrise), sculpture, projection and sound are used to analyse the often destructive nature of city life, underlining the inherent responsibilities we each have to halt the damage that threatens both our country and our wellbeing. Told through a series of traditional totemic shields (reimagined in large-scale sculptural form), this is a wake-up call from the misguided pull of the rat race.


Experience the first Ritual of Next Wave 2018 and be welcomed to Country at Blak Dot gallery from 5.31pm Thu 3 May.
