Stories from Little Sisters Camp

Stories from Little Sisters Camp

Sally M. Nangala Mulda

Sally M. Nangala Mulda’s paints the everyday of life for residents of the Town Camps of Mparntwe (Alice Springs). Mulda tells her stories with honesty and no judgement. Her subjects range from the joyful to the confronting. Scenes depict domestic happenings and the continuation of cultural practice, such as Sally feeding her cats or women cooking kangaroo tail over the fire. Her work also records the ongoing police presence in Town Camps and community, and issues like the need for prepaid cards to use electricity.

“Works like Sally’s – by an Aboriginal woman who lives in circumstances most would not be able to cope with, that are government controlled and haunted by constant police presence – are our country’s biggest gift.” Coby Edgar, Art Gallery NSW
