'Kallianku' | Patrick Tjungurrayi

26th June - 20th July 2019

Showing from 26th June 2019, the exhibition 'Kallianku' celebrates the artistic talent and cultural knowledge of internationally recognised Aboriginal artist Patrick Tjungurrayi.

Born pre-contact, circa 1935, in one of the most remote corners of Australia’s central desert region, Patrick Tjungurrayi grew up living a traditional lifestyle before wandering in to the recently established Balgo Mission in the 1940’s. A senior lawman revered for his knowledge of lore and country he was the custodian for ceremonies and country between Balgo, Kiwirrkurra and Kintore.

Patrick Tjungurrayi’s paintings centre on the mythical Tingari stories that explain the creation of sacred sites and stories throughout his country, Kallianku. His work was defined by his deep ceremonial knowledge and authority as one of the most senior lawmen of his people.
