Wilam Biik

Wilam Biik – meaning Home Country – showcases a diverse range of works by First Nations artists from South-East Australia.

“Our Wilam Biik is the soil, the land, the water, the air, the sky, and the animals residing within. The only home we know, which we honour for its sacred exchange. A home where custodial rights and responsibilities never left. May this place you call home become a deeper part of you,” says curator Stacie Piper, Wurundjeri, Dja Dja Wurrung and Ngurai Illum Wurrung woman.
