Ngura: Country

In Pitjantajara language the word Ngura is multifaceted, taking in the geography of land and country as well as being a place that someone belongs. Ngura defines an individual, their family, connections, skin groups and language. Short St Gallery has sought to provide an exhibition that covers the full gamut of what Ngura (country) means to the artists of Iwantja. For the ten artists showcased here, country can be soft and deep while for others it is intricate and sweeping. The rich textures of this exhibition will be available to view in the gallery from May 26th.
