Yurtu Ardla

Posted 1 month ago by SA Museum

    The Yurtu Ardla exhibition is a celebration of the continuity of Adnyamathanha wood carving and of the revitalisation of Nukunu wood carving practice, and is the result of a Ku Arts project initiated by Nukunu and Adnyamathanha men, in partnership with the South Australian Museum.

    The Yurtu Ardla project began with a Ku Arts workshop series in 2015. The exhibition results from the continuation of this project starting with South Australian Museum visits and workshops in April 2017. Workshops have been led by master Andymathanha carver and language speaker Uncle Roy Coulthard.

    By sharing skills and knowledge, the men of the neighbouring language groups have not only produced important artistic works but have deepened friendships that will help to keep Adnyamathanha and Nukunu carving practice strong.
