Bound Unbound Collective

The Bound Unbound Collective is Ali Gumillya Baker, Simone Ulalka Tur, Faye Rosas Blanch and Natalie Harkin. These four Indigenous women artists/academics work together to present artworks that are cutting edge contemporary cultural theory under the title, Sovereign Acts. Ali Gumillya Baker shifts the colonial gaze through film, performance, projection, and grandmother-stories. Simone Ulalka Tur’s performance, poetics and song enact an intergenerational transmission of story-work through language revival and education. Faye Rosas Blanch engages rap theory to embody sovereignty and shedding of the colonial skin. Natalie Harkin’s archival-poetics is informed by blood-memory, haunting and grandmother-stories.


Our mission is to provide artists and non-artists with opportunities to create contemporary works that explore local ideas and new way of coming together in the public domain.
