Kulata Tjuta Project
Led by senior Anangu artist, Willy Kaika Burton, the Kulata Tjuta Project started in the Amata community and now involves men from the seven art centres from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands. This ongoing cultural maintenance project shares the skills of spear-making across generations, with the resulting installation incorporating film, sound and live performance.
Senior men, including Adrian Intjalki, David Franks, Keith Stevens and Mike Williams, have enlisted the support of young men from the APY Lands, and have collaborated with Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones in the creation of their vision for Kulata Tjuta. Shared during TARNANTHI, this latest work explores the relationship Anangu have with Country and is dedicated by the senior men to those who have begun the fight to keep their communities open.
