Roll up, roll up, Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, its show time as David Archer presents his intriguing artworks, sensational sideshows and amazing interactive spectacles.

While much effort has gone into researching and implementing successful technical strategies for reducing waste and emissions, accelerating rates of consumption are undermining these efforts.
It is clear that we need new systems-based approaches to reduce this excess consumption, including the excesses of our ‘waste-making’, to generate a more sustainable circular economy.

Patners: Zero Waste SA Research Centre for Sustainable Design and Behaviour.
Transforming Production and Consumption in Time and Place Conference, 21-24 May, Adelaide.

We have an important story to tell. It is a new tjukurpa (dreaming story). It is a story about our culture, our faith and our relationship with our land. This is not a story that our grandmothers or grandfathers told us. This is our story - Kapi Ungkupayi. It happened to us.


Kapi Ungkupayi is an installation of new work by five contemporary Pitjantjatara artists living in the very remote Indigenous community of Irrunytju and Papulangkutja near the tri-state border of SA, WA and NT.

Partners: Art Gallery of South Australia - 2015 Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art (8-18 October). Minyma Kutjara Arts Project.
