Group Exhibition | Ua numi le fau, Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, May 6- June 8. 2016

April 24, 2016

Ua numi le fau
Gertrude Contemporary
Next Wave Festival

Curated by Léuli Eshraghi (SAM/IRN/VIC)

Featuring Atong Atem (SSD/VIC), Dale Harding (Bidjara/ Ghungalu/Garingbal/QLD), Yuki Kihara (SAM/JPN/NZ), Carlos Motta (COL/USA), Frédéric Nauczyciel (FRA) and Mandy Nicholson (Wurundjeri/VIC)

Six leading local and international artists draw on resurgent First Nations and diasporic knowledges in Ua numi le fau, an exhibition project asserting sovereign futures through performance video, photography and textiles.

The title is a Sāmoan expression that literally means ‘the string tying the lupe pigeon is entangled’, but is used metaphorically to explain an affair that is complicated and difficult. Bodies and kinships are explored through sexuality, spirituality and ecology in this exhibition, which will be uniquely articulated in multiple languages and mediums. Ua numi le fau frames material presences and politics in art, performance and text from Fitzroy, Collingwood and Abbotsford in Wurundjeri territory, to the world beyond.
