ām / ammā / mā maram Exhibition at The Condensery

The Condensery, 29 Factory Road, Toogoolawah


In ām / ammā / mā maram artist Sancintya Mohini Simpson researches her matrilineal heritage, making visible the histories of indentured Indian women that remain marginal or erased in colonial archives.

A first-generation Australian and descendant of labourers sent from the port of Madras (now Chennai), India, to work on sugar plantations in the British colony of Natal (now KwaZulu-Natal), South Africa, Simpson’s exhibition traces her family’s journey using materials common to these places and histories – such as sugarcane and mango.
Through a combination of mediums, Simpson’s speculative archive speaks to the complexities of intergenerational trauma, memory, migration and healing.
