24 (Colour Correction) by Kate Constantine – Original work on canvas; acrylic paint
440 X 440 X 50mm

June 2019

When you fix a mistake, you make a correction, a change that rights a wrong. When you correct a misspelled word, you’ve made a correction. Well done! Correction also applies to punishment, which is another way to right a wrong. A correction is an improvement or a revision when there’s something that needs to be fixed.

Konstantina known for powerful use of colour has put together a series of work that annotates today’s political and socio-political environment from her perspective as an Aboriginal woman, mother and activist.

Each work plays on a double entendre based on typically European interpretations of words, though uses colour to counter that European meaning and provide an Aboriginal context.

This work is extremely personal and emotive. It is meaningful on a number of levels, whilst boasting a playfulness that takes the sting out of the messages Konstantina delivers the viewer.

DIDACTIC:

24 is the new 27, well it would be, if they were white?
24 is the number of children incarcerated in the Northern Territory today.
24 is the number of children incarcerated who are aboriginal.
11 is the number of them in Don Dale which was recommended for closure 3 years ago via a Royal Commission.
16 is the number that are on remand
And 8 is the number of those who are actually sentenced to be there!
22 are boys
2 are girls
24 is the number of a system that is clearly broken
