So if you’re in Alice Springs 2 – 5 pm on 12 June go along to the opening of Ingkerr anyent-antey, the language of batik, at the Peta Appleyard Gallery. This looks like another good exhibition from Alyawarr and Anmatyerre students studying language at Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Education (BIITE), Alice Springs campus. And a very interesting way of bringing language work into other areas of life that entrance people.
It follows on their successful 2008 exhibition bringing together language and art, Intem-antey anem ‘These things will always be’: Bush medicine at Utopia. You can buy the associated DVD from Batchelor Press. And you can see the 2008 show again – this time at Batchelor.
