360 flip on country

Do you think it’s possible to ride a work of art? Claudia Moodoonuthi might think so! Moodoonuthi is a young artist connected to the Kaiadilt and Lardil peoples of Bentinck Island, Queensland. This week, we look at her series of six colourful skateboards that express her connection to Country and ceremony.

  • Identify what inspired Claudia Moodoonuthi to create the series 360 flip on country
  • Describe the colours, lines shapes and patterns that appear on the skateboards
  • Discuss the significance of Moodoonuthi’s application of traditional symbols on modern objects
