From 22nd September to 15th February 2019
VIEWING OF THE MURAL 22nd September 2018 12:30 - 1:00 pm
The official opening of the site-specific artwork at the Sea Wall on Bondi Beach. It is freshly installed, historical first visual acknowledgment of the Gadigal which includes imagery from the earliest known photograph of a ceremony on Bondi Beach created by Blak Douglas.
Blak Douglas has created a mural on the sea wall at Bondi Beach. Seaweed Mob (2018), a major work commissioned by Cooee Art Gallery, pays homage to the original inhabitants of Sydney’s south coast, the Gadigal. Having sourced what is reputed to be the only known photograph of a ceremony taking place on the southern end of the beach, he incorporated it into a panoramic photograph taken on his iPhone 5S+ when the beach was completely covered in seaweed. The image has been further enhanced using local rock carving imagery, stylised hand & foot prints and a ‘you are here’ map on left hand edge which traces the coastline like a ‘bloodline’.
