she lingers in archives / her trace is my memory / we labour dig sweat blister imagine / know them more intimately / so much work to be done to clean up this colonial mess.
Narungga poet/artist Natalie Harkin draws from oral history, the state’s official record, archival-poetics and video installation, in this powerful reckoning with Aboriginal women’s domestic labour in South Australia. The culmination of a significant process of trace and return through shadows, spectres and paper trails, APRON-SORROW / SOVEREIGN-TEA is an installation and public program evoking intergenerational stories that span loss, love, sorrow, solidarity, resistance and refusal.
