About this Event
We are excited to announce we will be opening for Fringe Festival 2020, Nov 12 - Nov 29. Keeping safe Blak Dot offers a contactless check-in, we strongly encourage everyone to wear a face covering while in the gallery. Thank you this will help protect you and our community.
EXISTING ON TWO PLANES
Omens, portents and messages from the other side. Stories of dreams, ancestral spirit visitors and the messages we receive daily as we walk through life. They are often warnings or telling of family events or suffering. A portent of death or of future birth. A warning of impending pain or a harbinger of future happiness.
As Indigenous and First Nations people we walk through life tuned into the spirit plane as well as the living plane. We weave mana and meaning into the things we create and understand that the spirituality of things is integral to its existence in the material world.
The show offers unique contemporary First Nations and Pacific art and includes sculpture, print, weaving, digital multimedia and floral installation.
