VCA ART 2021

Hakira Coleman-Wilson

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting)

I am a proud Ngarrindjeri, Kokatha and Nukunu woman from Kaurna land (Adelaide). I have been living and working in Narrm (Melbourne) since 2012. My practice explores my Indigenous roots and ties to Country. I work in sculpture, photography and with found objects. Through an interest in archaeology and ancient histories, I explore different practices, such as weaving, and transform these into large sculptural installations. Influenced by the generational matriarchy, I pay tribute to these women through my work.
