Meet Julie Gough

Julie Gough is an artist, writer and curator whose work involves uncovering and re-presenting conflicting and
subsumed histories, many referring to her family’s experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Gough is
Trawlwoolway through her maternal family. Her traditional homeland is Tebrikunna in far north-eastern
Lutruwita/Tasmania, with her extended family living in the Latrobe/East Devonport region since the 1840s.
Trawlwoolway ancestor Woretemoeteyenner, born in the late 1790s, was one of the four daughters of east
coast leader Mannalargenna. Gough’s current work in installation, sound and video provides the means to
explore ephemerality, absence and recurrence.
