James Tylor is presenting a solo exhibition, Mudlirna, at JamFactory in Adelaide as part of the Tarnanthi Festival, showcasing a new body of carved Kaurna objects placed within Southern Kaurna landscape imagery.
It celebrates the living culture and design of the Kaurna community in South Australia, while also addressing the past misrepresentation of their culture by non-indigenous individuals in museums and galleries.
By exploring Kaurna culture and art from a Western perspective, this exhibition aims to challenge racial stereotypes and give proper recognition to their culture and signifies the revival of Kaurna cultural arts in a contemporary art context.
