The Aboriginal Song of the Seven Sisters

April 5 - July 1, 2023, PARIS.

The Aboriginal Song of the Seven Sisters offers a complementary intimate look at the story of the Seven Sisters, a great Aboriginal myth celebrated in the Songlines exhibition. Song of the tracks of the Australian desert at the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac.

The exhibition presents a selection of works on the theme of the Seven Sisters, including recent and older works, by artists from different generations and different regions of Australia, revealed in an atypical exhibition space in the heart of the Passage of the Great Deer.

Like an invitation to travel, the exhibition follows the trail of the Seven Sisters, a group of ancestral women whose adventures, sung, danced and drawn for millennia, help to explain the formation of the world and of Aboriginal tribal laws, from the central desert to to the Pilbara region to the west coast of Australia, crossing three Australian states.

The works in the exhibition present different interpretations of history depending on whether the Seven Sisters are on earth or in the sky in the form of stars, and as many perceptions of landscapes, and allow us to understand the relationship that the artists have to their ancestral land, to the Earth and to the world around them.

The works of young emerging artists respond to the works of their parents and grandparents, while a dialogue is created between works of varied styles and approaches, testifying to the resilience, diversity and incredible dynamism of creation. contemporary aboriginal.
