Arelhe Urrperle

Back to 2024 Signature Installations

This six-metre high and visually-spectacular puppet presented by Erth Visual & Physical Inc is for all ages as she roams across Parrtjima. Arelhe Urrperle represents our matriarchs and knowledge holders and is intrinsically connected to the Songlines of her Country. She recognises the influence and importance of our First Nations women, their strength and spirit and their role as providers to the families connected to the Arrernte skin groups. Most importantly, she reminds us of the unique relationship to land, waterways and sky country.

Featuring layers of sound and light, Arelhe Urrperle will also sit down to take counsel with children and visitors, like the old ways of learning across the generations. She’ll invite people to share a moment. Do they have a secret wish? What are their hopes and desires for the future? This is a quiet moment to share and remind us all that we are always learning.
