Regina Pilawuk Wilson is a Ngan’gikurrungurr woman and renowned artist from the Peppimenarti community in the Northern Territory. Regina expresses her love for the unique weaving practices and artistic traditions of her clan group through her own technique painting on canvas. Situated 250km south-west of Darwin, amid wetlands and floodplains, Peppimenarti is one of the smallest Aboriginal towns in Australia with a population of less than 250 people but it’s producing some of our most prolific fibre artists. Regina has been instrumental in the practice of abstracting the woven form onto canvas and has now taken that one step further in a unique collaboration with Australian furniture and homeware designers - Koskela. For the ‘Koskela Collection’ range Wilson has created three specific designs - Ngangi [message stick], Wargadi [dilly bag], Syaw [fish net] . These DURRMU [meaning designs] based on the teachings of Regina’s elders have been developed through her collaboration with Koskela into a contemporary series of printed linen and silks for one-off hand-made cushions and throws. But most importantly, what matters most to Regina is that her families line-age and it’s cultural traditions are kept alive in every way possible. She tells video journalist, Patrick Abboud how this special collaboration with Koskela allows for the sharing of her clans stories in a unique and authentic way.
