Abdul-Rahman and Abdul Abdullah are highly regarded in their own right but are rarely presented side by side. Ngununggula invites the brothers to present alongside an acclaimed Australian artist that has had a significant influence on their practice. Tracey Moffatt AO, an acclaimed artist and Australian representative for the 57th Venice Biennale, has long been this influence.
Moffatt, known well for striking a chord with her views, boldly positions issues of race, identity, and sexuality within historical and present-day cultural politics. With this grouping of artists, their work draws on collective memory and experience, unpacking how the representation and perpetuation of culture, knowledge, and tradition can be transferred through storytelling.
