Week 32 of 2017

32Taken Away by Sally Morgan, a part of the NGZ Permanent Collection
This week we celebrate the International Days of Worlds Indigenous People

The artwork depicts mothers reaching out to their children as they are being dragged away. It points to issues surrounding the Australia’s Indigenous groups were they were deprived of their civil rights and liberties forcefully separated from their kins in tragic ways. In this artwork the earth is presented as a mother. Here humanity is born as one.
