Is it Art or is it Knowledge? Aboriginal Creative Making – Prof Liz (Belanjee) Cameron
June 5, 2021
Knowledge can take many forms. From an Aboriginal perspective, knowledge in artmaking utilises symbols, motifs, and line-markings to inform us about people and place. These traditional techniques have been used as a descriptive text for thousands of years and continues to traverse across various spheres to convey messages of cultural content. This presentation aims to provide artists and those newly acquainted to Aboriginal artmaking, some insight into how symbolism is a rich source of insight by exploring the human sensory connection in artmaking.
Liz Cameron is a Professor at Deakin University. She holds the position of Chair of Indigenous Knowledges. Liz is a practising artist and researcher that enjoys sharing her knowledge in Aboriginal arts-based practices. Website – https://belanjee.com
