Kapi Ungkupayi/He gave us water

22 September – 13 November

Artists: Roma Peterman Butler, Ivy Laidlaw, Jennifer Mitchell, Tjawina Roberts & Tjayanka Woods

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