Secretos de la Raíz – Innato is a multi-dimensional video installation that investigates ancestral knowledge, and the spiritual and physical connections shared across generations, cultures and continents.

Developed specifically for Countercurrents, the work is a new site-specific piece drawing on concepts developed for Secretos de la Raíz.

Originally performed as part of the 2021 YIRRAMBOI Festival, Secretos de la Raíz brought together 13 professional artists from a range of disciplines and cultural heritage to explore ancestral knowledge in the contemporary landscape.

In this new iteration, footage and multimedia from the original work made by Coya Films has been curated and crafted to create a new visual dialogue for projection across four screens at Brunswick Mechanics. Kathleen Gonzalez and Sermsah Bin Saad will connect with the installation and share their explorations – encapsulating heritage, spirit and soul as a symbol of Aboriginal cultural revival and resilience – in a performance and conversation on Sunday 19 June.
