Ecumene (the lived world)

Ken and Julia Yonetani are artists in residence with the Murray Darling Freshwater Research Centre and Sunrise 21. Ken Yonetani has been involved in many art/science collaborations including  his spectacular installation Sweet Barrier Reef which represented Australia in the 2009 Venice Biennale. Ken and Julia are taking part in a 3 month Synapse art/science residency in preparation for Mildura Palimpsest #8Ultrabuddha – that is why I want to be saved, was created at Lake Mungo earlier in 2010, with permission from the indigenous peoples of the area. An entirely new work will be developed during their three month residency in Mildura for next year’s Palimpsest #8.

Jonathan Kimberley’s painting is an exploration of culturally constructed relationships between Western landscape and Aboriginal country. His practice combines solo painting and in depth collaborations with indigenous artists in their country. Ecumene (the lived world) is a solo exhibition. Kimberley’s most recent collaboration with Kayili artists Ngipi Ward, Pulpurru Davies, Nancy Carnegie, Manupa Butler, Norma Giles, Jodie Carnegie and Paul Carnegie, Kuluntjarra World Map: The nine collaborations, will be shown at Mildura Art Deco Palace, 39 Langtree Ave, from    September 15-28.
