We are excited to welcome Reclaim the Void artists Vivienne Robertson, Lucy Ridsdale and Rachel McKenzie for an Arts Residency at Boola Bardip.
Reclaim the Void was born from Ngalia elders in Leonora, Western Australia, expressing their pain and grief at ‘those gaping mining holes left all over our country’. The idea was conceived to symbolically ‘seal’ one of the holes with an artwork expressing the story of country.
The artists will be weaving rugs using exquisite hand-spun khadi generously donated by Woven Stories. Visitors are invited to come and chat about this project of many hands weaving country whole.
Looking for other Reclaim the Void programs? See our 'Reclaim the Void weaving workshops'.
Reclaim the Void is informed by Ngalia Western Desert traditional knowledge, spirituality and culture, through the Ngalia Heritage Research Council (Aboriginal Corporation), and is immersed in the cultural custodianship of elders past, present and emerging. It is supported by DLGSC, Lotterywest and Arts Impact WA.
