ABOUT THE ARTWORK:

This work depicts the kunkurra, the spiralling wind associated with several sites in the Kardbam clan.
The artwork has two stories. First, it shows the kinds of mini-cyclones common during the wet season in Arnhem Land. Secondly, Kunkurra relates specifically to a site called Bilwoyinj, near Mankorlod, on Janet’s husband’s clan estate. At this site, two of the most important Kuninjku creation beings, a father and son known as nakorrkko, are believed to have hunted and eaten a goanna. They left some of the goanna fat behind at the site, which turned into the rock that still stands there today.The Bábbarra Women’s Centre in Arnhem Land is governed by women, for women, to enable future enterprises that support healthy and sustainable livelihoods. Initially started as a safe space for women, Bábbarra now designs and hand-prints textiles that are sold around the world.
Bábbarra and Kip&Co divide all profits from the collaboration equally, so 50% of profits will return to the Bábbarra Women’s Centre.
