Ḻiyagawumirr miny’tji is a small but elegant exhibition of bark and fibre works by highly regarded senior artists and accomplished weavers Helen Ganalmirriwuy and Margaret Rarru.

Working side by side in Milingimbi, East Arnhem Land, Helen and Margaret have collaborated on woven objects which were exhibited alongside artworks by the other finalists in the 2008 National Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Art Award.

While minimal and abstract in their aesthetic, the beautiful artworks on show are imbued with a deep knowledge of sacred sites and significant moments in the journey of the ancestral spirit beings who travelled across country, creating the landforms that exist today.

Rarru’s use of mol (black) dye is significant in that she refined the recipe herself and authorises the use of black dye by certain artists.  Both Ganalmirriwuy and Rarru are continually inventing new ways of working that incorporate the wisdom and experience and those who came before them.
