#Camp Dogs

Maningrida artist Lena Yarinkura developed the idea for her Camp Dogs editions during a series of workshops in the early 2000s. The workshops were run by Maningrida Arts and Culture and UAP and taught artists about the processes of pattern making and casting. 

Yarinkura’s Camp Dogs stand at around half a meter in length and are cast in either aluminum or bronze. Each edition is based on a maquette created by Yarinkura using natural materials and plasticine, which allows UAP’s craftspeople to maintain the subtle textures and forms that are iconic to Yarinkura’s practice throughout the casting process. 

Yarinkura’s Camp Dogs are filled with character and humour; they are often oddly shaped and bring a sense of joy and playfulness to any setting displayed.

UAP proudly funded the first editions Camp Dogs. For more information on these incredible editions, please contact [email protected].

I make lots of dogs because dog is my [Djian]… its important for me. A long time ago there was a big dog… he could change the shape of the Country… We know that dog is still there too. He watches over my Country.
