BOB BURRUWAL & LENA YARINKURA: KUNKAMAK NGARRWONENG - OUR HOUSE OF CULTURE
Bob Burruwal and Lena Yarinkura’s Kunkamak ngarrwoneng (“our house of culture”) is an exhibition of Djarngo – laws, natural forces, animals, objects, emotions and phenomena - that form the artists’ religious beliefs. Burruwal and Yarinkura practice and instruct young people in ceremony, rituals, dance, song, art making and Kune and Rembarrnga lifeways.
The artists have transformed paperbark, pandanus, feathers, ochres, stringybark, hand rolled string, and other plant and animal matter from their clan estates in Arnhem Land to manifest the characters, artefacts, homes and sites from Kune and Rembarrnga religion.

In March 2018 Beth Mbitjana Inkamala and a group of potters travelled from Hermannsburg, Northern Territory to Pukatja, South Australia to participate in ceramic workshops with some local artists, including Ernabella artist Carlene Thompson.
The workshops enabled the artists to share their stories of country and culture and develop new techniques in pottery. Beth Mbitjana Inkamala and Carlene Thompson created exceptional ceramics that reflect their own unique interpretation of their landscape, while reflecting a communal spirit and aesthetic.
