TARNANTHI // Anniebell Marrngamarrnga: Ngalkunburriyaymi (Yawkyawk Dreaming)

Anniebell Marrngamarrnga is a senior Kuninjku artist from Kakodbebuldi in western Central Arnhem Land. She is renowned for her large-scale, flat fibre depictions of her late husband’s ancestral story of the Yawkyawk – a water spirit with the torso of a woman and the tail of a fish, who lives in the freshwater streams and rock pools of Kubumi. Anniebell uses pandanus leaves and botanical dyes, and employs techniques for making baskets and dilly bags to craft her finely woven creations. This is her first solo exhibition.

TARNANTHI // Yarrenyty Arltere Artists: Nurna yaarna iltjerrama. Nurna kutatha mpaarama!
(We can't rest. We always/continue make!)

Yarrenyty Arltere Artists are renowned for their vibrant, playful sculptures made from recycled wool and natural dyes. For Tarnanthi 2021 they have transferred their stitching skills from soft sculptures to create a collection of fashion garments and accessories in their inimitable quirky style. Yarrenyty Arltere Artists is a not-for-profit, Aboriginal-owned and run art centre in Mparntwe (Alice Springs). The artists are mostly from the Larapinta Valley, where the art centre is located.

Artists: Sheree Inkamala, Trudy Inkamala, Roxanne Petrick, Louise Robertson, Marlene Rubuntja, Rosabella Ryder, Dulcie Sharpe, Rhonda Sharpe.
