Exhibition Runs 28 July -  2nd September

Wednesday - Saturday 10am – 3pm
Sunday 10am – 3pm


Wangka Kutjara, Tjukurpa Kutju (‘Two Voices, One Tjukurpa’) examines the mother–daughter relationship of Anangu women Puna Yanima and Linda Puna.

The exhibition focuses on the strength and importance of respected senior women in the community, and the significance of passing on cultural knowledge to the next generation.

Puna Yanima is a respected senior Anangu woman who has a strong connection to country and traditional law, as well as a deep knowledge of Inma (ceremonial music and dance).

Linda Puna’s paintings combine Tjukurpa (foundation of Anangu life and society) with day-to-day observations, incorporating objects such as 4WDs, houses, windmills and water tanks. Remarkably, Linda is the first Anangu woman to live in a remote community whilst being dependent on a motorised wheelchair.

Presented by Linden New Art in partnership with Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.
