Nicole Monks: miyarnuwimanha

‘miyarnuwimanha’ translates to ‘learning, becoming knowledgeable’, a concept that is explored by Yamaji Wajarri, Dutch and English artist Nicole Monks. In this exhibition, Monks explores the innate and unconscious interconnectedness to Country, community and culture and considers notions of knowledge transfer, the resilience of the stolen generation and the complexities of living off Country on other mob’s unceded land.
