Australian artist Brian Robinson creates artworks inspired by his Torres Strait Islander heritage and the tropical marine environment surrounding Waiben (Thursday Island).
For this exhibition, Brian has created the large-scale print work Lagalgal: The Mysteries of our Land 2022. This artwork was inspired by constellations that appear in the sky above the Torres Strait, and how the movement of the stars is intertwined with life on the Islands. Children can watch this artwork come to life through an animation on display in the exhibition space.
As part of the exhibition, children can also make a woven angel fish using coloured paper strips and create a drawing by rubbing crayons over different carved designs.
An exhibition guide in large print and braille is available in the exhibition space. Audio descriptions of the artist's print work Lagalgal: The Mysteries of our Land 2022 and the accompanying animation are also available in the exhibition space.
