Kaiki & Taralyi is a collaborative project led by Ngarrindjeri Elder Major ‘Moogy’ Sumner, AM. The exhibition features sculptural glasswork of kaiki (spear) and taralyi (spear thrower) by Major Sumner, created in collaboration with glass artist Jessica Loughlin and glass technicians at Adelaide’s JamFactory. Reed spears by young Ngarrindjeri artists are also exhibited alongside work made in response to traditional artefact-making by artists Damien Shen and James Tylor.

Kaiki & Taralyi was filmed on location by Allan Collins, ACS, with video projections by Charlotte Sumner, assisted by Cindi Drennan.

Kaiki & Taralyi is curated by Carmel Young and Charlotte Sumner
