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

“Our ancestors are always listening and this is why we have to walk this earth with good intent. When singing to the ancestors I use clapping sticks or boomerangs to hold the beat of the song and there is an echo that reverberates and creates a vibration, which is captured beautifully in this image. Clapping sticks are a traditional Indigenous instrument used for percussion, and these particular boomerangs I carved myself from a fallen Ironbark tree that was over 200 years old. The timber itself is a reincarnated spirit, so when using these in song or ceremony, i feel it deepens the call and connection to the earth and my ancestors.”
