In Pepai Jangala Carroll's new body of work, Ngayulu anu ngayuku mamaku ngurakutu, the artist has retraced his father’s story, reconnecting with his homeland. Translating as 'I went home to my father’s country', the exhibition summons notions of personal heritage and belonging. Carroll travelled back to his custodial country in April 2017, having left this region as a 19-year-old after his parents passed away. Pepai has spent the last 40 years living and working in Ernabella. On this recent trip he travelled with fellow Ernabella artist Derek Jungarrayi Thompson to visit sites between Kintore, Kiwirrkura, and Lake Mackay (Wilkinkarra). Concerned with passing on this new knowledge and experience, the results are profound and sensitive.
