Moorina Bonini, Australian Melting Pot, 2018, at the Shepparton Festival
11 June 2021 – 27 June 2021
Australian Melting Pot (2018) examines the complexity of living between multiple cultures in Australia. Bonini explores the Australian identity and how it manifests in our society through an extensive ingredient list, that combined make for the perfect identity stew.
Moorina Bonini is a proud descendant of the Yorta Yorta Dhulunyagen family clan of Ulupna and the Yorta Yorta and Wurundjeri-Woiwurrung Briggs/McCrae family. Moorina is an artist whose works are informed by her experiences as an Aboriginal and Italian woman.
Australian Melting Pot (2018) will be projected after dark on the wall neighbouring Wild Life Brewery at 172 Maude Street, Shepparton for the duration of the festival.
