Art Exhibition At The Australian Embassy

12.10.2016Australian Ambassador H.E. Julia Feeney and Second Secretary Maris Tebecis hosted an exhibition of art by young Serbian artists Sofija Gavrilović and Velimir Andrejević, followed by a cocktail reception at the Australian Embassy.

This was the first exhibition of Serbian boomerang art by these two young artists, entitled The Returning of the Boomerang. Inspired by the concept of ‘returning’, these young Serbian artists used the indigenous Australian boomerang as a motif, hand-making and painting their own boomerangs and creating boomerang-inspired stories. We were told that these boomerangs do actually return when thrown properly, but these ones were too beautiful to throw!
