CAMPFIRE


CAMPFIRE

For NAIDOC Week @ NGV Design Store Melbourne https://store.ngv.vic.gov.au/ & Spacecraft Store https://spacecraftaustralia.com/

Spacecraft Studio and Kaiela Arts work together on projects to introduce emerging Indigenous artists from Shepparton and Mooroopna in the north east of Victoria to screen printing technologies and professional art practices. Campfire is a curatorial concept connecting artists and experts through campfire events held on the banks of the Goulburn River. Trees supplying the wood for the campfires are carefully chosen and pigments created from the residual charcoal are later used to create the finished artworks. The process infuses the artwork with a distinctive voice emerging from the artists personal experiences of country, research, collaboration and learning.
