‘Jagun’ means ‘country’ in the Bundjalung language. All of the art that Holly has created for this collection are elements and stories of Country. Holly explains the meaning behind this name, and collection, below:
‘This collection acknowledges and celebrates our sacred Jagun - Country. First Nations people’s relationship with Country is sacred, and is interconnected with our culture, kinship, traditions, song lines, languages, and physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. Country is our mother and it is our responsibility to care for her.
First Nations people are the original storytellers, educators and holders of knowledge on this Country. Our connections and relationships to Country continues to remains strong today. This always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.’
