An exhibition by Alexandrina Fredricka Campbell as part of Reconciliation and NAIDOC Week
I am of Ngarrindjeri descent. I was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1991. I paint Ngarrindjeri contemporary art, using my memories, life experience and stories passed down from my grandmother and mother. I want to express my Ngarrindjeri culture through art for myself healings and for our family stories to be passed down to the next generation. I am proud to have knowledge passed to me by my grandmother and mother. I am also proud to be Ngarrindjeri and I am lucky enough to have spent a lot of my younger days growing up as a child on country and having my memories today. My grandmother is a storyteller and would always tell us about her memories growing up on Ngarrindjeri Ruwe. My grandmother Amelia Campbell was born on Point McLeay Mission, now known as Raukkan, South Australia in 1948.
