Extract from Mossenson Galleries:
In 2006 Dinni Kemarre embarked on a major project, carving sixteen sculptures of AFL football players â€“ one from each club in the league. These included well known players like Nathan Buckley, Chris Judd, Michael Long, and Aaron Davey. These sculptures came to the attention of curator Phil Manning at AFL World, who invited Dinni to exhibit at AFL World. The resulting exhibition, Centre Bounce, went on display in March 2006 and explores the central role of football to remote Indigenous communities.
The current work was produced by Dinni in 2011
This work is available for viewing between Friday 29 June to Sunday 22 July by appointment at Mossenson Galleries, 41 Derby Street, Collingwood VIC 3066. For more information, see www.mossensongalleries.com.au
