Making Things Lively with Miyarrka Media
You are invited to participate in the Yolŋu art of digital connection.
Miyarrka Media’s Paul Gurrumuruwuy and Jennifer Deger will zoom from Gapuwiyak to present a performative manifesto for the enlivening force of remix, or the work of making things yuta [new].
Drawing together material from their recent films and book Phone & Spear (Goldsmiths 2019) these two long-time collaborators will make the case for a yuta anthropology, a co-creative approach to social analysis dedicated to the art of bringing once separate worlds into relationship.
Paul Gurrumuruwuy is a Director of Laynhapuy Homelands Association, a Director of Goŋ-Ḏäl Aboriginal Corporation social enterprise, and co-founder of Miyarrka Media.
Jennifer Deger is a Tropical Research Leader at James Cook University, Theme Leader Creative Ecologies at The Cairns Institute, and co-founder of Miyarrka Media.
Miyarrka Media is an arts collective based in the Yolŋu community of Gapuwiyak in northern Australia. Led by Dhalwaŋu elder Paul Gurrumuruwuy and James Cook University’s Jennifer Deger, Miyarrka Media have exhibited in the United States, Europe, Australia and Taiwan.
