Wik & Kugu on show (London)

Aak Keenkanam: From the Beginning by Wik & Kugu Arts Centre at JGM Gallery (London)

"Aak" is a Wik-Mungkan word that encapsulates the meanings of "Land", "Country" and "Home". In combination with "Keenkanam", which signifies ancient times in Wik-Mungkan culture, the term can be understood as "Land from the beginning". What this exhibition conveys, then, is a reverence for Wik people's land, culture and ancestral wisdom. 

Artists: Alair Pambegan, Leigh Namponan, Keith Wikmunea, Flora Woolla, Bruce Bell, and Lex Namponan.

Exhibition on show until 2 September.
