Mi Wawa is one of three large scale Frillip Moolog beings shown in the curated strand of Wirksworth Festival 2012. The work was shown in the ancient and atmospheric St Mary’s church in the heart of Wirksworth, Derbyshire, UK.
Running for over 20 years, Wirksworth Festival has become one of the most vibrant showcases for contemporary art that you’ll find in rural England. Wirksworth and its surrounds have a unique character and situation, positioned at the meeting point between rural and urban, agricultural and industrial, ancient and contemporary.
During the three weeks of their residence in St Mary’s the three beings witnessed: worship, weddings, orchestral rehearsals and and the ancient ceremony of the Clipping the Church.
