Water Dreaming Blue BagMuseum
Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac
Kirsten Nangala Egan was born in 1989 in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 km northwest of Alice Springs in Australia's Northern Territory and grew up in the bush in Wayililinypa. Kirsten paints her father's dreams, Yankirri Jukurrpa (emu dream) and Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa (fire country dream), Mina Mina Jukurrpa and Pampardu Jukurrpa (flying ant dream) from her mother and Ngapa Jukurrpa (water dream) from her grandfather. The tradition of painting was passed on to her by her mother Madeleine Napangardi Dixon and her grandmother Jeannie Nungarrayi Egan. The Dreamings relate to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it on the recycled tote bag. KIRSTEN NANGALA EGAN © Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, 2022.
