Renate Rienmueller, silver gelatin (fibre based) photographic print, 27 cm x 21.5 cm (framed size 39.5 cm x 32.5 cm)

“Im standing in between worlds... It's not night it's not day, i am not awake nor asleep...i am right in the middle of some kind of gateway or archway, waiting to come inside. In language...Dharra-wuu-nga-rra means to “enter the passage, pass through the archway, go inside”. This bit of language so beautifully describes this crossing over from the physical to the spiritual world and entering into a different realm or state of being when I am singing and calling in my ancestors. When you pay respects by singing to the ancestors, the gateways open and you are given certain answers/ insights/ glimpses/ enlightenment that you require in that moment. The movement in this image represents that shifting in between states and the felt vibration in that moment of calling in the ancestors through song.”
