> Watch Robert Fielding : Ngananya on Vimeo <
In 2020 Robert Fielding developed creative responses to the dissonance between the institutional knowledge held in ‘official’ archives and lived knowledge held in oral traditions. He has created a personal archive of histories and images connecting the Afghan pioneers, Anangu culture, the stolen generation, environmental changes and the ongoing process of land theft and oppression.
Ngananya is the first body of work presented as part of this research.
