  • Lorraine Tye, Guya-gu Marraanba Yinaa: One Woman Fish Net 2017 (detail)

Wiradjuri artist Lorraine Tye presents the new installation Guya-gu Marraanba Yinaa: One Woman Fish Net, a 4.5-metre high woven structure in the form of a Wiradjuri fishing net, accompanied by a school of individually woven fish. This extraordinary work, commissioned for the Gallery’s annual installation program, The Point, acknowledges the learning of Wiradjuri ancestors who looked after the rivers and the guya (fish). In creating Guya-gu Marraanba Yinaa: One Woman Fish Net, Lorraine Tye was assisted by Jonathan Jones, Sydney-based Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist and curator.
