Minyung Woolah Binnung - What Saying Says

19.00

Murri poet Lionel Fogarty is one of the most challenging Indigenous writers - one of the most "unassimilated" to western standards in both style and content. Without leaving his revolutionary spirit behind, this collection marks a new direction in the poet's work: for the first time readers see his voice expressed not only through writing, but through art as well. Fogarty's drawings are unique in their infusion of 20th century avant-garde elements and Indigenous Australian symbolism, producing spirit figures of a futuristic Dreaming that complement the poets for a powerful and independent Indigenous Identity. More than ever, Fogarty's style forces his readers and critics to feel rather than intellectually grasp what it means to be an Indigenous person of Australia.
