Outlaws is a direct response to the multidimensional nature of Indigenous identity and culture within contemporary Australia. Each figure is hand-built in terracotta clay, reflecting the connection between Indigenous peoples and Country in materiality. The works address both the beauty of pre-colonial Indigenous life and the consequences of colonialism on Indigenous lives and practices. I have created an ode to the resilience of Blak culture through the reclamation of symbols such as Captain Cook; addressing the social, economic, and cultural attempts to displace and destroy Indigenous culture. These figures sit as vessels for current Indigenous identities and knowledge, a culmination of research I did whilst making the work. They highlight the determination of Blak peoples and culture to continue, especially as represented through Blak kids today.

This work was created on Kaurna Country.
