Ngintaka exhibtion

The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in North West South Australia are full of art – and much of it concentrates on expressing the story of Wati Ngintaka.

This will be the first time Anangu traditional owners from the APY Lands relate the story, one of their foundational songlines, in such a multi-layered exhi­bition. The South Australian Museum will be the canvas for works that combine song, story, dance, painting, carving, tjanpi, audio and a 360-degree film install­ation that aim to tell the story of Wati Ngintaka – the Perentie Lizard man.

The South Australian Museum
Showing until June 22
