Ngurambang: Our Riverina: Mirrul

Research output: Non-textual outputs, including Creative WorksCreative Works - Original - Visual art works


The Mirrul (Mirrool) Creek (actually an ephemeral river) begins at Mt Wharrun (304m) at the southern end of Ingalba State Forrest (Yingalbaa), and currently runs a little over 116km in a north-west direction to the south of Barellan where its path becomes indefinite. Originally the Mirrul Creek flowed well beyond Barrellan. Its original flow carried west a further 150km connecting to Barren Box Swamp, then out to join the Galari Bila (Lachlan River) at Waljeers/Booligal. Through Creative Practice Research, as an embodied practice across the critical domain (Sullivan 2010) and archival research a series of new works respond to the systemic and structural colonial emphasis and omission in discourses on water sovereignty. The series of works explore a personal relationship to the Mirrul Creek as it develops over prolonged re-visitation exploring its original, pre-colonial course.
