Kurunpa Kunpu | Strong Spirit

Tanya Singer, Errol Evans and Trent Jansen

Kurunpa Kunpu is the outcome of a three year, inter-cultural design collaboration between Tanya Singer, Errol Evans and Trent Jansen that began when Tanya, Errol and Maruku Arts invited Trent to their homelands at Railway Bore in remote South Australia. The designers learning from, and about, each other’s unique relationships with Country, family and community.

By engaging with their respective cultural practices and traditions, the designers have realised a collection of furniture that speak to the resilience of both First Nations People and ngura (Country), celebrating the potential for inter-cultural collaboration to embody diverse cultural values and lived experiences.
