Identifying Culture brings together three discrete series of artworks by emerging Australian photographer Amy Pfitzner. Through her practice she embraces conflicts and curiosities, which are allowed to enter her images, many of which explore issues of identity in relation to family and culture.
Pfitzner herself is a part of a growing generation of ‘white’ Indigenous Australians, with her Indigenous ancestry lying with the Kokatha people of the west coast of South Australia, whilst her other ancestory is of English, German and Irish. Many of her artworks bring to light a personal feeling of disconnection, and subsequent desire for reconnection to traditional Aboriginal culture, established through the platform of new media. As such the works shown within Identifying Culture question a person’s identity and cultural history,an identity that is slightly obscured, or hidden behind a new urban or ‘white indigenous’ perspective of place, and contemporary equipment.
This is Amy Pfitzner’s first solo exhibition. She is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Photography) at the South Australian School of Art, University of South Australia. In addition to her studies she has worked as a photographer at the South
Australian Museum since 2012, working with the Insect Collection.

I had the privilege of attending the opening of Amy’s “Identifying Culture” exhibition at Tandanya, the opening was part of a group show and featured traditional dancing and high ceremony. Tandanya is possibly the best art space in Adelaide, and Amy’s work takes it’s place well. Amy’s work is grand and mesmerising, I found myself returning to it to study. I highly recommend you visit Tandanya and experience these works for yourself. – Paul
It was a pleasure to attend the opening of Kit’s latest exhibition at the National Wine Centre (NWC). Kit’s images of the Simpson Desert are printed as large canvasses and hung in the upstairs gallery at the NWC. The desert is a fascinating place at all scales, and Kit has chosen an intimate view that can only be seen when your looking carefully. Below is the story behind the images.
Please make time to visit this great show.
My first experience of the Simpson Desert was in the 1960′s when, while teaching at the Alice Springs High School, I accompanied an Alice Springs Stock and Station friend on his business trips to cattle Stations out from the Alice – some being on the edge of the upper Simpson.
It wasn’t until June, 2001, when I was very fortunate to be offered a trip as a passenger/relief driver on a Toyota 4-Wheel Drive trip to Birdsville and west, that I would be able to renew my acquaintance with the desert. The trip didn’t turn out as planned as a lot of rain had fallen over that route and we changed from the Birdsville Track to the Oodnadatta Track to Mt Dare homestead and then onto the Old Andado Track to the Old Andado Station.

Shona Henderson won our 2012 competition Shona’s image was chosen out of the 32 entrants by over 750 members of the public in two voting forums; the Winter Bridal Ideas Fair, where the entrants’ images were printed on a 20x24inch paper and visitors to the fair were asked to pick their favorite, and on-line at our voting website.
