Jabu Birriny, meaning ‘land’ and ‘sea’, celebrates the unique environment of Yarrabah and its ongoing importance to culture and people. Located on the shore of Cape Grafton FNQ, Yarrabah is the traditional Country of the Gunggandji people. It is a dynamic Aboriginal community surrounded by tropical native bushland and mountain ranges united by sandy coastlines and coral reefs.
This exhibition showcases stories rich in past and recent histories with vibrant prints, textiles and ceramics. Jabu Birriny (land + sea) was developed by State Library of Queensland in partnership with Yarrabah Arts and Cultural Precinct (YACP). The YACP artists are Philomena Yeatman, Michelle Yeatman, Valmai Pollard, Edna Ambrym, Ruben Ambrym, Eric Orcher and the exhibition includes also independent artist, Elverina Johnson.
