CLIFFORD ‘POSSUM’ TJAPALTJARRI AND EXTENDED FAMILY

Clifford ‘Possum’ Tjapaltjarri has had a remarkable and active career. His works are amongst the few indigenous contemporaries to be recognised by the international art world. Like Albert Namatjira before him, Clifford Possum blazed a trail for future generations of Indigenous artists; bridging the gap between Aboriginal art and contemporary Australian art. These works house knowledge and histories which are a privilege to be shared, they are the fabric of the land, from a living culture which is tens of thousands of years old. During Supermild, the Mitchelton Gallery of Aboriginal Art will host the works of Clifford ‘Possum’ Tjapaltjarri and his extended family, alongside real-time live paintings featuring Gabriella ‘Possum’ Nungurrayi and Michelle ‘Possum’ Nungurrayi.

EMME ORBACH

Emme Orbach is a Melbourne-based sculptural installation artist concerned with the anthropocene. Her practice explores ways in which systems of nature co-exist and collide with human-made structures over time. Among Emme’s best-known works is a ‘crystal’ series in which minimalist aluminium sculptures are submerged in a liquid chemical solution; allowing the residual growth of crystals to take over and encompass the form. Emme’s recent work has an environmental and political focus on the Australian recycling crisis, bringing light to many illegal stockpile sites throughout Victoria.

FULCRUM

Fulcrum provide unique, totally immersive experiences that capture the imagination of participants as an artistic reflection of their own human experience. In doing so they provide a mirror with which participants may become self-aware and witness their own humanity from an objective perspective. The culmination of music, dance, visuals, lights and unique, 3 dimensional creations generates an immersive experience that interrupts the habituation of life and challenges expected norms of reality. A psychedelic experience is a total experience and by providing an environment that is nurturing and conducive, we can truly allow the experience to reach its full potential. In short, they create visual pieces that affect and amaze the viewers

GALLERY OF ABORIGINAL ART

The Mitchelton Gallery of Aboriginal Art was established by Adam Knight and Gerry Ryan OAM, who share a passion for Indigenous Australian art. Exhibiting the outstanding work that continues to be produced in this field today, the gallery was created to provide an inspiring new space for locals and visitors to experience the artworks of Australia’s First People. During Supermild, the gallery will host the works of Clifford ‘Possum’ Tjapaltjarri and his extended family, alongside real-time live paintings featuring family members Gabriella ‘Possum’ Nungurrayi and Michelle ‘Possum’ Nungurrayi.
