S.J Norman speaks with Jazz Money about grief, spiritual art and power

Wiradjuri artist S.J Norman recently won the 67th Blake Prize, which recognises achievement in spiritual art. Norman’s winning photograph documents the 147 incisions made on the artist’s back during a 2019 performance, which marks the 147 Aboriginal people who died in police custody in the preceding decade. Wiradjuri poet and artist Jazz Money sat down with Norman to discuss the significance of these images.
