Watch the animation Party Time! by Kaylene Whiskey in Gallery 9. Make a list of any things or people you recognise. Share your list with others, what else did your friends and family notice? Can your findings be grouped in some way?
The title of Whiskey’s latest painting, Seven Sistas Sign (2021), is a play on words. It refers to the story of the Seven Sisters, Kungkarangalpa, a significant Tjukurpa (ancestral story) for the Aṉangu people, as well as for many other language groups and communities across Australia. Whiskey’s seven female icons stand in for the strength and resilience of Whiskey’s own community of sistas. Draw a female role model in your life. It might be someone you know personally in your family or community or it could be someone who influences you from sport or popular culture. Capture their strength, resilience and character. You may even like to transform this person into a superhero.
