Exhibition Overview

KALIPINYPA IS A SACRED SITE north-east of the remote Aboriginal community of Kintore on the Northern Territory and West Australian border.  Many of the artists from Papunya Tjupi paint the important story of the rain and hail making ceremony at the site of Kalipinypa in wonderfully varied ways. The title of this exhibition is a reference to the way the artist, Charlotte Phillipus Napurrula, interprets this story – lightning flashes, showing her the way through her country, and then turning into sand.

More broadly, with the title of this exhibition, the Papunya Tjupi artists are also paying homage to the way that many artists from the desert develop deeply personal ways to interpret and depict country.
