Artist statement

Pikili is one of the many inland lakes the Minyma Kutjara (two women) stopped at on their travels.

Minyma Kutjara is one of the most important women’s Tjukurpa stories of the western and southern deserts and a special story for Irrunytju. It tells the story of the difficult journey of two sisters who travelled throughout these vast lands. The story is one that has been told many times through dance and painting.
