Robert Fielding

Artist-In-Residence (APY Lands)

May – June 2023

Robert Fielding is a contemporary artist of Pakistani, Afghan, Western Arrente and Yankunytjatjara descent, who lives in Mimili Community on the APY Lands. Robert combines strong cultural roots with contemporary views on the tensions between community life and global concerns.

Robert’s work is rooted in his personal experience of reclaiming culture as a son of the Stolen Generation. He confidently moves across different mediums forming a meeting point for different narratives to come together and connect with each other. Deeply connected with the sands of Mimili, this residency will offer Robert the opportunity to familiarise himself with the medium of glass which has a real connection to earth.
