Our Interview with Emerging Artists Kelsey + Tarryn Love on their Upcoming CHYA Exhibition

Our exhibition is titled “Ngeerrangoon”, which translates to “sister” in our dialect, Keerray Wooroong. It encompasses the idea of us being sisters and also young Gunditjmara women, continually learning and seeking knowledge of our culture from our family and ancestors. It also encapsulates the significant presence that our late grandfather, Uncle Ivan Couzens, had over our discovery of culture and identity, and the inspiration of his passion for celebrating Indigenous excellence and culture.
