Sitting Down Place by Kyra Mancktelow

Kyra Mancktelow is a Quandamooka woman with links to Mardigan, Kabi Kabi and South Sea Islander peoples. Heritage and family are central to her practise. Printmaking and sculpture feature most prominently as methods employed to create her work, which explores her culture’s history, traditions and identity.

The exhibition Sitting Down Place speaks to the history of Minjerribah by referencing the Myora Mission and speaking to the resistance and resilience of the Quandamooka people through the artist’s methods of sculpture and printmaking.
