Intertwined: Pandanus Fibre, Culture and Design

Ended — at Tactile Arts

Date & Time


Marebu and Mukuy: The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a pandanus mat and baskets showing the traditional technique of weaving pandanus to create cultural objects. This will establish a visual link between the adaptation of traditional pandanus weaving to designs on fabric from Maningrida, and the creation of the sculptural Mukuy spirit beings from Beswick. Pieces of fabric will be hung and draped. Fabric will also be featured in sewn items including cushion covers, skirts, dresses and bags. These articles will highlight the pandanus mat motif of this part of the exhibition and will be specially made for this collection.
