Tarnanthi - My Country, My Identity
9 Oct – 6 Nov 2021
My Country, My Identity speaks to Sasha Hill’s reciprocal and interdependent relationship between herself and her Country. ‘Caring for and healing Country starts with my own journey into knowing my self-identity and caring for myself and my family. Country for me is both a place of belonging and the knowledge that I belong’, says Sasha, a Yamatji/Noongar woman living on Kaurna Country.
In this exhibition, she shares aspects of Country through paintings that express songlines and ancestral stories, artefacts and weavings. It also includes clapsticks carved by her father and painted by her, and works by her children as they learn connections to Country and identity through art.
