Wyndham Art Gallery will stage the major exhibition WILAM BIIK focused on the Home Country of First Nations artists from South-East Australia, from 27 October to 18 December 2022.

Wilam Biik means “Home Country” in the Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people. It is an exhibition of cultural consciousness and knowledge, of an unsevered connection between First Peoples of Southeast Australia and their Country, over thousands of generations.

Wilam Biik is the Soil, the Land, the Water, the Air, the Sky and the Animals that reside within. It is the only home we know, and we honour it for its sacred exchange. A home where Custodial rights and responsibilities never left.

The exhibition features new work from contemporary artists Paola Balla (Wemba Wemba, Gundjitmara), Deanne Gilson (Wadawurrung), Kent Morris (Barkindji), Glenda Nicholls (Ngarrindjeri and Yorta Yorta), Steven Rhall (Taungurung), Nannette Shaw (Tyereelore, Trawoolway, Bunurong), Kim Wandin (Wurundjeri), Arika Waulu (Gunditjmara, Djapwurrung, Gunnai) and the Djirri Djirri Wurundjeri Women’s Dance Group (Wurundjeri, Dja Dja Wurrung, Ngurai Illum Wurrung).
