Anwernekenhe Ayeye – The Story Belonging to Us by Sally M. Mulda.
This T-shirt is a design from Tangentyere Artists, and is part of the Nganana / Koskela: Art Centre T-shirt Collab. Nganana / Koskela: Art Centre T-shirt Collab.
Born at Titjikala to parents from Erldunda and Aputula [formerly known as Finke] regions, Sally Nangala Mulda went to school at Amoonguna when her family moved there. She married and had her only child as a young woman but lost both her husband and her baby daughter. After losing the use of her left arm in a childhood accident, Mulda later faced the challenge of losing her sight in one eye. Widowed and without children, Mulda lived with friends and extended family in Alice Springs for many years. Having never painted before joining Tangentyere Artists in 2008, from the outset Mulda sought to record those interactions that constitute life for so many Aboriginal people today.
Sally Mulda records events she witnesses and experiences without any particular judgement. It is as it is. This form of social commentary on the daily lives of Town Camp residents in Alice Springs represents an important catalogue of lived experiences, captured for posterity. As Mulda explained about her many years living at Little Sisters Town Camp, located at the base of Mt Gillen, just south of Heavitree Gap, ‘Us grownups sitting one side, all’a kids playing and making noise on the other, all’a dogs - big - little - all running round, making noise, all feeling good for home, you know?’
Tangentyere Artists operates a not-for-profit arts hub across Town Camps (18 Alice Springs Aboriginal housing associations). With a studio, gallery space, and outreach program, they offer artists an open environment to create, and share artistic skills. Tangentyere Artists is committed to innovative, sustainable, ethical fine arts outcomes for the community.
