An initiative of Fremantle Arts Centre, In Cahoots: artists collaborate across Country is an expansive exhibition of new work. The works are the result of 18 months of artists’ residencies in remote and regional Aboriginal art centres across Australia. Artists from six key Aboriginal art centres invited leading independent artists – both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal – from around the country to work with them. The resulting collaborative artworks are significant, striking and bold in their inventive use of materials. Featuring sculptural works, installations and films drawing together the ideas of artists from diverse backgrounds, In Cahoots presents these fascinating, potent collaborations happening across Country today.

In collaboration with Neil Aldum, a Perth-based artist, the Baluk artists have shaped a series of sculptures that speak of the connectedness of these upheavals and solace that comes from their shared experience – undulating and moving together with the changing physical and cultural landscape. Using ancient igneous rock as their counterweights each pendulum contains works that speak of their personal stories.
