Mervyn Rubuntja, Artist Statement: We want to introduce to people in urban environments the beautiful landscape of the Northern Territory. At the same time, we want to raise awareness about the issues we are facing. We feel that there is a lack of consultation with traditional owners. If the authorities would only listen to us rather than investing in things such as mining on our country, which we strongly object to.
Jack Green, Artist Statement: On ‘Our Country is alive and Whitefellas don’t want to know’, Miners are always trying to get up close to our people, pick them off one by one. They like to get photos of their people shaking Aboriginal people’s hands. They are always busy trying to make things look good while they poison our land and damage our sacred places.
