Tarnanthi Artist talk
Hear from Ngarrindjeri / Boandik / Kaurna artist, Vicki Hartman and Wemba Wemba / Yorta Yorta / Wergaia artist Pat Ingram, who created two life sized emu’s made as part of Tarnanthi at the Tainga Marine and Land Debris Art Project; a textile and sculpture workshop facilitated by Port Adelaide Enfield Council. Kardi the male emu and Murltarra the female emu are made entirely from discarded fishing nets and ropes that have been cut free from fishing vessels and left to drift in the sea, also known as ghost nets. The artists have repurposed the nets and ropes to raise awareness about the environmental and ecological damage that is occurring in our oceans. On display in Gallery 7.
