Kiama video, North Bombo Headland, Kiama NSW

During his residency in Gerringong, Craig was invited to a special performance with members and friends of the Boolarng Nangamai Aboriginal Art & Culture Studio. Craig was also invited to document parts of the performance, including a powerful presentation by local resident Julie Freeman who told the story of ‘Kiama’ which has been passed on from generation to generation within her family. As she spoke she began to cry, washing away some of the clay that she was wearing as part of traditional dress. The video of Julie sharing the story of Kiama was then displayed for members of the Studio at an evening projection night at North Bombo headland. The above video is documentation of this amazing night. With thanks to Julie Freeman, the Boolarng Nangamai Aboriginal Art & Culture Studio, Kiama Municipal Council and Sydney Water.
