Elements is a group art exhibition showcasing artworks from Baluk Arts, an urban Aboriginal Arts Centre based in Mornington. Baluk is a local Kulin word meaning many, or group of people. This FREE exhibition runs from 4 May to 23 June 2019 at Linden New Art, 26 Acland Street, St Kilda, between the hours of 11am and 5pm.

As the title suggests, artists have drawn inspiration from the fundamental elements of nature; earth, air, fire, water, wood and metal. Natural materials like shell, coral, kelp, bark, feathers, clay and possum skins have been used. Curated by Lisa Waup, this exhibition explores the concepts of the vessel, places of belonging, loss and motherhood. Sculpture, prints and textiles give a response to ideas around what is carried and has been let go. It also explores the fragility and strength of our planet.

You can purchase Aboriginal artworks locally made from Baluk Arts. They include works like clap sticks, carved wooden artefacts, paintings, works on paper, natural jewellery, didgeridoos, handmade cards, self-published books, scarves and sculpture. All sales assist this non-profit organisation and directly benefit Aboriginal artists by providing materials, studio space and development opportunities.
