Butcher Cherel Janangoo
Presented in association with Fremantle Arts Centre and in collaboration with Mangkaja Arts
Butcher Cherel Janangoo was a key elder of the Gooniyandi language group in the Kimberley and was instrumental in the retention of men’s law ceremony at Muludja Community.
Janangoo features a selection of Butcher’s vibrant gouache paintings from the 1990s-2000s, which he made to preserve and transmit this significant body cultural knowledge to the younger generation. They provide glimpses into his cultural and physical environment.
This exhibition will be the first time these works have been shown outside of Fitzroy Crossing. As he stated, 'with my eyes, my heart and with my brain I am thinking. When I go to sleep night time, I might talk to myself ‘ah, I might do (paint) that one tomorrow,’ not dreaming; I think about what to do next.'
Janangoo is curated by Lynley Nargoodah
