On The Tracks Of The Honey Ant Dreaming - Sur les traces de la Fourmi à Miel
TJUPI TJUKURRPA WANANYI- On The Tracks Of The Honey Ant Dreaming
Where I comme from in France, I saw a painting : the Dreaming of the Honey Ant. In this Dreaming there are some dots, some crescents, some lines... There is no particular way to look at them. I am overwhelmed but I don’t know why.
These signs are like tracks to follow. They took me along to a red desert, the Australian desert. In Papunya I am now living with the Aborigenes of the Desert. I am asking them about the story of the Honey Ant. They are telling me Tjukurrpa, the Dreaming.
