Who was Pemulwuy? Why was a suburb named after him? Where did he come from? When did he live and how is he connected to this land?

Film, video and sound artist Darrin Baker explores the naming of the western Sydney suburb Pemulwuy – and the stories of the Bidjigal man and resistance leader for whom the suburb is named – in this multiscreen, surround sound installation. Baker interweaves animation and fictional recreations with documentary interviews with traditional knowledge holders, to unpack the history and legacy of Pemulwuy the man, the guerrilla warrior legend and the suburb named in his honour.

Pemulwuy and The Naming of Things is part of our ongoing Terra inFirma program.
