Ngali Dullan - We Remain

This new permanent exhibition aims to create an immersive atmosphere on entry to the Museum and give visitors a sense and understanding of Quandamooka people and country since time immemorial. Ngali Dullan enables visitors to view Minjerribah / Tjerrangerri through a non-colonial lens.

It is a statement that we, the Quandamooka people, are here and always have been. We remain, our culture, our stories and our strength remains.

Ngali Dullan is a collaborative community project with Quandamooka artists facilitated by Megan Cope. Contemporary and historical objects include woven baskets / gulayi, one by Granny Nuningha (Rose Martin) and one by Sonja Carmichael and a fishing spear / jibal by Matthew Burns. Commissioned works by local artists: Nicky Karklis-Jones, Nathaniel Chapman, Martin Karklis, Belinda Close, Elisa Jane Carmichael and Xoe Mazzoni, depict historical stories as well as important cultural and environmental information. These stories are overlaid on top of maps of country made by Megan.

The immersive maps illustrate Quandamooka-dja and Yarabin-dja (Moreton Bay Land and Sea Country). It draws from Megan’s ongoing series titled After the Flood where she uses toponymy, geomorphology and the latent consequences of rising sea levels.

“These works seek to challenge the construct of time, place and fabric of our society that was formulated with the arrival of European settlers and convicts. Military maps echoing the myth of Terra Nullius once depicting land devoid from Aboriginal occupation are now reimagined and illustrating significant names and places to Quandamooka people.” Megan Cope
