Selfies

Amazing collection of pieces from Tangentyere Artists….

“Representation of Self by Town Camp Artists Tangentyere Artists & Yarrenyty Arltere Artists, supported by Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education, invite you to an exciting exhibition of new works.
Mixed in media and method, ‘Selfies’ is an exciting exhibition created by Town Camp Artists, eager to communicate with their audience about the cultural landscape in which they negotiate everyday existence, to communicate about who they are, how they live, who or what’s important to them.
Exploring the media of acrylic pens on wood, Tangentyere Artists have broadened their depictions of their everyday lives to incorporate themselves, other family members, pets, and other animals and places that are important to them.
Mentored by Batchelor Indigenous Institute of Tertiary Education, new artists joined the ‘Selfies’ themed project. They have used printing as a means by which to depict mythical and magical realities – more storytelling about their lives.
Tangentyere Youth Corps participated in representing themselves, and Yarrenyty Arltere Artists brought their considerable skills to the same themes.
