Ikuntji Artists are excited to be part of ‘Dessin du territoire – territoire du dessin – Land Drawing – Land of Drawing’ Exhibition – A French-Australian artist collaboration project in 2021.
An artist collaboration project with French artist Patrice Balvay based in Le Havre, in the north of France, and a collective of women artists from the community of Haasts Bluff located the central desert of Australia.
As part of the “Le Havre, Australian stopover” event organised by the city of Le Havre, French artist Patrice Balvay and a collective of Aboriginal women artists are creating two panoramic works in parallel, forming a site-specific installation.
These two works are a topographical, symbolic and emotional transcriptions – on the model of the Aboriginal “dream” – of an experience of two territories: the city of Le Havre and the Australian desert.
The two series of drawings and paintings are exhibited face to face in Le Havre’s superb Hanging Gardens, in alveole 10.
A project initiated by Patrice Balvay, organised in collaboration with IDAIA and the Ikuntji artist cooperative in Haasts Bluff, in partnership with the City of Le Havre, and with the support of SIFA Logistics.
