WHATS ON AT YARRA?

Two Girls From Amoonguna is an exhibition featuring
new work by Arrernte and Southern Luritja artist
Sally M Nangala Mulda and Western Arrarnta artist
Marlene Rubuntja. It recounts their intertwining stories
of friendship and resilience in the Central Desert.
Encompassing video, soft sculptures, and paintings,
the centerpiece animation, Arrkutja Tharra, Kungka
Kutjara, Two Girls, was made in collaboration with
Ludo Studio (Bluey, Robin Hood, and The Strange
Chores). Sally and Marlene’s practice is representative
of Mparntwe (Alice Springs), where they live. Playful,
self-referential, and humorous, their work embodies
the politics, history, and culture of Mparntwe and its
surrounding town camps.
An ACMI touring exhibition.
This project has been assisted by the Australian
Government’s Visions of Australia program.

In this space we begin to remember, and it feels so right”      Lilly Clegg
