Ngala Wongga

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION


Ngala Wongga (Come Talk) - Cultural significance of languages in the Goldfields is a collaboration with the Aboriginal community in Goldfields, WA. The conceptual body of multimedia work goes beyond documentary and photojournalism creating an aesthetic and creative platform highlighting the Elders connection to land whilst illuminating the cultural significance of Australia's endangered languages.

A series of evocative portraits invites us to engage with each individual and their personal stories enhanced through a poignant and haunting story telling installation.

Gungurrunga Ngawa (Look Above) is a series of aerial photographs that captures the ethereal beauty and unique shapes and textures of the Goldfield's salt lakes.

Using landscapes, portraiture and multi-media Martine Perret's work intertwines the story of an extraordinary and ancient land, peoples, culture and language.

Hear a sneak peek of these languages and stories from the Elders online here and from Edie Sceghi about her experience working along side Martine Perret online here.
