En savoir plus

Ce livre relate le développement et la diffusion d'un mouvement artistique d'importance mondiale, raconté du point de vue du peuple Yolngu du Nord-Est de l'Australie.

Il présente plus de 90 peintures emblématiques sur l'écorce d'eucalyptus, dont beaucoup n'ont jamais été vues en dehors de l'Australie.

Ce livre est donc l'occasion de présenter ces peintures ancestrales émanant d'un art millénaire. C'est aussi l'occasion de mettre en lumière ce peuple qui, depuis l'aube des temps, pose sur l'écorce leurs dessins sacrés.

A revelatory compendium of eucalyptus bark painting, rarely seen by Western audiences.

This volume chronicles the rise of a globally significant art movement, as told from the perspective of the Yolngu people of northeastern Australia. It presents more than 90 iconic paintings on eucalyptus bark, many of which have never been seen outside of Australia.
For millennia, Yolngu people around Yirrkala in northern Australia have painted their sacred clan designs on their bodies and ceremonial objects. These designs--called miny'tji--are not merely decorative: they are the sacred patterns of the ancestral land itself. Yolngu people describe them as madayin: a term that encompasses both the sacred and the beautiful. With the arrival of Europeans in the 20th century, Yolngu people turned to the medium of painting on eucalyptus bark with ochres. The result was an outpouring of creativity that continues to this day as artists find new and innovative ways to transform their ancient clan designs into compelling contemporary statements that are chronicled in this singular publication.
