Gung: create, make, do, love shares a series of works from acclaimed visual artist Kelly Koumalatsos, with 24 new and existing works on display in Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum.

A Wemba Wemba and Wergaia woman, Kelly Koumalatsos is an award-winning Victorian Aboriginal artist with Greek heritage. She is renowned for her signature technique, uka ngalung wooleh (to paint with possum). Working with possum skin for over 30 years, Kelly's work is a striking statement about the intersections of identity and history within the modern world.

Kelly's work encompasses traditional and contemporary materials, including ancestral Wemba Wemba and Wergaia possum skin cloak making, and screen printing with fur. The powerful works explore the dichotomies of the self, identity, family, colonisation, resilience and rediscovery.
