Description

Carrying Home is a dual portrait of myself. It’s about who I am today and my place as an Aboriginal woman: a saltwater woman living in desert country. By living in desert country, I have learnt that saltwater is with me wherever I go. I am carrying home with me. Wearing my own woven garments, fish traps, and adornments, I stand in locations five minutes away from my home in saltwater country and five minutes away from my home in desert country. I carry the sea with me wherever I go.
