Biik Land

Ochre stencil prints by Baluk Arts

Biik Land is an exhibition of stencil works produced by Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Aboriginal artists over the last 6 months, in workshops facilitated by Andrew Mac of Citylights-Until Never and coordinated by Baluk Arts and Frankston Arts Centre. Working with ochre was a unique focus of the workshops, and artists travelled to Grampians Gariwerd to study rock art, and collect ochre.

Art Exhibition previously on at Until Never in Flinders Lane precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Wednesday 06 October 2010 to Saturday 06 November 2010
Launch Wednesday 06 October 2010, 5.30 to 8.00pm

Baluk Artists developed the idea for the ochre stencil project as a vehicle to express Indigenous connection to community, culture and place, using contemporary and traditional Indigenous techniques. The works incorporate ancient traditions of marking identity or mapping specific sites or stories.

This expression acknowledges and incorporates the dynamic relationship between the past, the present and the future, creating works of great vibrancy that celebrate aboriginal life as it has been, and as it is now. The artists were also joined for two days by guest artist mentor Regan Tamanui (aka HaHa).

In association with the exhibition at Until Never, Baluk artists will also paint a collaborative ochre stencil wall in Hosier Lane on the 5th and 6th of October, and photographic documentation of works will be presented in the Citylights Projects lightboxes in Hosier Lane, open 24 hours.
