Australiyaniality Part I - Songlines
< 1 day ago
How do Songlines work across Australian indigenous cultures?
To quote Wikipedia, a Songline is 'one of the paths across the land (or sometimes the sky) which mark the route followed by localised "creator-beings" during the Dreaming. The paths of the songlines are recorded in traditional songs, stories, dance, and painting.'
But there's more to the story, and possibly a simpler (if unexpected) way to explain it.
I was asked to participate in an exhibition project called Australiyaniality by my artist friend Matt McVeigh, which opened up the opportunity to explore my own thoughts on Australian identity, while meeting new artists and cultural leaders along the way who were also able to shed some light on the idea of Songlines and how they connect to people and land.
This is part one of a series that will explore further questions around Australian identity and the artists choosing to explore it.
