Llarmairremener Tabelti [Aboriginal Cultural Walk]
This work was centred on a ground-breaking arts project that brought together four indigenous artists, who jointly wove a fibre work as a response to their residence at the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania.
The fibre work was installed at the Lake St Clair Visitor Centre. A short walk was created through a range of park habitats to provide an apt setting to discuss Tasmanian Aboriginal history, along with information about today’s Aboriginal community and their continuing links with the land. There’s also an accompanying brochure to help visitors find their way.
The heart of this project was the artists’ response to place, with the graphic designer’s role to give this expression in words and images. My involvement included walking the track to help determine the placement of the panels – a great opportunity to gain insight into less tangible aspects of the project.
