Gunyah :: Melody Popple
3 Aug - 15 Sept 2019
Gallery 5

Official opening: 6pm Friday 16 August 2019

Gunyah is a performance artwork that explores concepts of belonging to the natural environment as well as the personification of an innate feminine presence within the Australian landscape. Unveiling the interplay of her Indigenous and non-Indigenous heritage, Melody uses the art making process as a way to understand current feminine cultural identities and connections to Country, manifested as intuitive expressions of collaborative dance, site specific installation, ochre painting, natural dying/eco-printing, film production and the shared therapeutic experience. 

The creation of Gunyah allowed Melody, as well as the other creative contributors involved, to look inward and reflect on the natural beauty in this world that must be celebrated and protected. Experienced as a return to one's natural home, the artistic process has allowed barriers surrounding perceptions of feminine identity to be reinvented in this ever shifting Australian cultural paradigm.
