BARKA: The Forgotten River

A beautiful, tender and gripping series of paintings, linoprints, sculpture, installation and sound, which map a timeline of the love that these artists have for the Barka (Darling River)–“our Mother and the blood in our veins”–and its people, the Barkandji.

BARKA tells the story of desperate fear for the river and its ecology; and the Barkandji people’s determination to fight for the river’s health and its fundamental role in maintaining the wellbeing of their cultural, social and economic life.
