Ngura Lingos (Country Languages) by Kate Constantine
July 2020
Acrylic & Polymer on canvas
120 x 90cm
Unstretched (rolled) and unframed
As a mother, artist and proud Aboriginal woman , I am obsessed with learning, reading, engaging in and being fully present within my culture. I think it comes from being denied it for such a long time. Regardless of the why, it allows me to see with fresh eyes the intricacies of our beautiful and old ways.
This piece, which means Country of Languages is cartography of sorts (fancy word for map), it charts, based on early settler maps and accounts the language groups that were represented and where they changed dialect across the greater Eora nation. The place we now call Sydney.
A wildly talented and super smart professor Jakelin Troy has validated these demarcation of language groups in her work Sydney Languages 1994, and notes that whilst all people across this huge space spoken different languages or different dialects of the same language – theY could indeed all communicate and comprehend one another.
Isn’t that WILD!
I loved creating this piece more than any other work I have painted this year, and I think it’s because it connects me so strongly to place and my heritage.
