A series of works by Wergaia/Wemba Wemba artist Kelly Koumalatsos.

Expressing her political and cultural outlook, Kelly draws on satirical humour as well as historical narrative to illuminate and tie together aspects of reconciliation, traditional cultural practice and its contemporary continuance.

Kelly’s early career began with making possum skin cloaks and screen printing with fur, both of which remain central to her practice today:

Kelly’s work in Wuregwurung: Speaking Together goes beyond the traditional methods of using possum fur, while remaining deeply embedded with her connection to her culture. Kelly’s work challenges the status quo of what contemporary cultural practice is and explores and highlights the diverse aesthetic of Victorian Koorie expression.
