SA: Spinifex Country Exhibition
This exhibition looks at the enduring significance of spinifex to Aboriginal Australia. It draws on ethnographic material culture, historic photographs and contemporary works of art.
The exhibition presents spinifex in its material form, as a subject and as a marker of identity, while also flagging non-Indigenous interests in this perennial grass.
Spinifex (Triodia sp.) is a tough, spiky, tussock grass that covers more than 20% of the Australian continent. It thrives in poor soils and provides a habitat for reptiles, birds and small mammals, and defines much of the country's arid landscape.
Traditionally, spinifex has been an important resource for Aboriginal people, foremost as a source of resin and as a building material for windbreaks and shelters. It also has medicinal and combustive uses, and many other innovative applications.
