Anmatyerr artist Margaret Palmer, along with Vicki Crowley present ‘”APMERE WERNE APETYE-ARLPAYE”, Amwengkwerne making softball’. This quirky and evocative exhibition features papier mâché figures to conjure the skill, humour and pathos of the game of softball as it has been played and celebrated by the women and girls of Amwengkwerne (Amoonguna) since the 1960s.
The exhibition features the “black pants team”, “the blue pants teams”, “the old women who came to watch us play” as well as the “Amoonguna softball taxi” to evoke heart, home, brilliance and country in a community that is so close to Alice Springs; and, like the game of softball, is so often underrated and overlooked.
