The title of Nyapanyapa Yunipingu’s fifth solo exhibition at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery – a Macassan term that translates to ‘pages and pages’ – not only reflects the scale and specific materiality of her most recent work, but the incalculable energy of her practice that continues to defy the conventions of Yolngu art making.

Exhibition Dates: 15 January – 14 February 2015
