Nura Rupert: Mamu and Mischief

Curated by Elizabeth Close

View the digital exhibition here.

Nura Rupert: Mamu and Mischief features paintings and prints by Nura Rupert. Kami Nura was a Ngangkari – a traditional Anangu healer. Nura could see Mamu (bad spirits) and the ways in which the Papa Tjuta (camp dogs) protected Anangu from Mamu. These works give us a precious glimpse through the eyes of a Ngangkari that could see more than most.

This exhibition draws on works housed by Flinders University Museum of Art including from the Ernabella Archive.

Supported by Arts South Australia, the In_Site: First Nations Emerging Curator Program is a partnership between Nexus Arts and Flinders University Museum of Art.
