Speaking In Colour, Cultural Flo, 2022 [detail.] Courtesy of the artists, commissioned by Cement Fondu.
In the Project Space for Virtue & Virtuosity, Speaking in Colour present a newly commissioned installation of traditionally woven turtles, Cultural Flo. Speaking in Colour is a collective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander educators, artists and health professionals who offer a range of innovative cultural and art workshops that embrace Aboriginal perspectives and foster powerful, positive relationships between First Nations and non-First Nations people.
Speaking in Colour’s presentation of woven turtles, made by Tamara Jackson, Anissa Harwood, Kristin Sheldon, Nina Ross, Lynelle Shipp and Cherie Johnson, encapsulates a traditional, embodied and slow mode of sharing knowledges and educating for ecological care — which offers a powerful counterpoint to the themes of environmental apathy and virtue-signalling explored throughout the rest of Virtue & Virtuosity.
