Tjukurpa, Ngura Kupilitja-Nguru

12 Mar 2015 – 15 Mar 2015

“We are telling the stories with our cameras now. We’re doing this because Anangu Tjukurpa or the stories of our Dreaming, they are not fairy tales. They are the stories of our country, they are true stories, and we live amongst these stories every day. These stories live in the trees and the hills, they live in our dreams and other hidden places; they are passed from Anangu to Anangu. These stories are in our country and they are in our blood.” – Rhonda Unurupa Dick, 2015
The medium of photography has taken the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in South Australia by storm. This exhibition of new works by the artists of Mimili Maku Arts and Tjala Arts explored the stories that lie in the hidden places of a living culture.
