Artwork Description

This artwork is from Vision and Voice exhibition, 2017.

Aboriginal culture lives though story. Through song, dance and visual art, knowledge is passed from one generation to the next. This body of work examines how stories thread generations together by questioning what happens when these knowledge pathways are disrupted. What happens to an individual, their family and their community, when a health event like a stroke robs them of speech?

For Aboriginal people, losing the ability to speak severs our oral storytelling traditions. How many stories have already been lost through the ongoing effects of colonisation? Through this powerful exhibition, Dowling reflects on the importance of protecting and preserving Aboriginal languages.
