A book will be made to accompany the exhibition, which will include full colour reproductions of the works and a contextual…

Sarrita King & Tarisse King share an Indigenous heritage connected to Gurrindji culture at Wave Hill in Central Northern Territory. They share this through their father’s line and combine this with their own upbringing in Darwin and Adelaide, and through travelling the continent and experiencing the great diversity it provides.
