Sculpting a Dugong for casting in Bronze
In this Episode 75 of Your Story we talk to Alick Tipoti about his preparation for a forthcoming exhibition in Monaco about his Torres Strait culture, it’s differences from the Australian Aboriginal and similarity to Melanesian cultures. We also discuss how he expresses his culture in paint, sculpture and dance.
Sculpting a Dugong
Recently while working at Urban Art Projects here in Brisbane, I had the opportunity to work with indigenous Torres Strait artist Alick in manufacturing a large dugong sculpture to be cast into bronze by theUAP foundry.
The video below shows the detail workmanship Alick used to share his cultural motifs and the production of the final, exceptional beautiful bronze casting to be shown at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco from March to September 2016, as part of a greater exhibition of Australian Indigenous Art.
