Richard Long In the nature of things: Art about mobility, lightness and freedom. Simple creative acts of walking and marking about place, locality, time, distance and measurement. Works using raw materials and my human scale in the reality of landscapes. The music of stones, paths of shared footmarks, sleeping by the rivers roar.
Aboriginal Art• Walkabout refers to a rite of passage during which male Australian Aborigines would undergo a journey during adolescence and live in the wilderness for a period as long as six months.• In this practice they would trace the paths, or "songlines", that their ancestors took, and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds.
Aboriginal Art• According to Aboriginal belief, all life as it is known today can be tracked to the Dreamtime or the era of Creation.• During this time, their Great Spirit Ancestors undertook many amazing journeys that criss-crossed the vast country of Australia in a maze of tracks.• They performed feats along the way, which established the natural formations of the Australian landscape as it is seen today.• The events of this distant time have been passed down in the oral tradition of folklore and are still enacted in ceremonies that include dance in mime form to the accompaniment of clap sticks.
