Produced in collaboration with the Culpra Milli Aboriginal Corporation, Interpretive Wonderings is an exhibition of mapping shaped by the stories and history of the country of Culpra Station in NSW. In September 2015, thirty Indigenous and non-indigenous creative practitioners gathered at Culpra Station for a workshop to map the material and immaterial qualities of the country. A former grazing and cropping property on the Murray River floodplain, the station is situated on the traditional country of the Barkandji people and home to a number of significant Aboriginal cultural heritage sites. The exhibition reflects a coming together through diversity of the participants in a collaboration underpinned by a shared commitment to the preservation, protection, promotion and celebration of Aboriginal culture and custodianship through country. The workshop, a collaborative project betweenn the Culpra Milli Aboriginal Corporation, RMIT University, University of Technology Sydney and Monash University sought to produce mappings of country which challenge cartographic convention - in this way the mappings produced often challenge the notion of what is generally accepted to be a map including drawings, paintings, video and audio installations and performance pieces.
