With this sculpture, Tarisse wanted to translate her “Handing Down” story into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture, and the stories passed down over the centuries.

Handing Down Story

Many of the stories told by Tarisse King, through her artwork, were handed down directly by her father, the late William King Jungala. After William passed away, Tarisse would feel connected to her father through her artwork, but she always felt a longing to connect with her Australian Indigenous culture.

Tarisse regularly travels back to her ancestors’ lands, the Gurindji country. And now she brings her 3 daughters. Tarisse has enjoyed sharing the stories and history of the Gurindji Ancestors. This new series of artworks are a representation of these trips, and the handing down of the stories to her children.
