Stockwoman Timelapse

Installed over three weeks in the Public Space at Carriageworks, watch Thea Anamara Perkins’ largest work to date take form in this timelapse video.

Drawing on her family history, Perkins paints her great-grandmother and Arrernte elder Hetty Perkins, who from the age of 14 worked riding horses and branding cattle in the gold mining settlement of Arltunga, 110 km east of Mparntwe (Alice Springs)

In Stockwoman, Perkins adapts the visual vernacular of the Australian Gothic tradition to reimagine a First Nations matriarch as the truest representation of a strong and daring spirit.

Visit Thea Anamara Perkins’ Stockwoman at Carriageworks until 12 Feb, 2023, Wed-Sun from 10am – 5pm.
