    The Gonds from Madhya Pradesh and the Warlpiri people from Australia share a subconscious connection rooted in the nature that surrounds them.
    You wouldn’t imagine that Madhya Pradesh and Australia have too much in common, but art is what joins them. The Gonds from Madhya Pradesh and the Warlpiri people from Australia share a subconscious connection rooted in the nature that surrounds them. Their methods of art practice are connected despite the huge geographical gaps between them.

    Focusing on the Gond tribes from Gondwana, India and the aboriginal Indigenous Community from Australia, who also refer to an ancient site with the same name, Mr. Rajeev Sethi set about discovering the connections between its original descendants. He travelled to the Northern Territory in Australia, visiting various settlements to learn about their way of life and memories. The beautiful and untamed terrain is home to numerous indigenous tribes including the Pitjantjatjara, the Arrernte, the Luritja, the Warlpiri further north, and the Yolngu.

    Speaking about the Gondwana Art, Gautam Adani, Chairman Adani Group, said, “History is fascinating but I did not expect to learn so much about Gondwana, the 550-Mn-years-old supercontinent through stories curated by Australian Aboriginal and Indian Gond artists. The cultural exchange also reflects upon the historic bond between the two nations”.
