About

Freda Teamay is a a young emerging Anangu artist and contemporary Tjanpi Desert weaver who has exhibited at the Art Gallery of South Australia along side Sappers & Shrapnel: Contemporary Art and the Art of the Trenches in 2016-2017.

"Sappers & Shrapnel also reminds us that conflict occurs in broader contexts than theatres of war. The Tjanpi Desert Weavers (Rene Wanuny Kulitja, Judy Ukampari Trigger, Erica Ikungka Shorty, Lucille Armstrong, Mary Katajuku Pan, Janet Inyika, Niningka Lewis and Freda Teamay) use camouflage military garments for Tjituru-tjituru, 2016, evoking the enduring anxiety of the dispossessed."

Freda Teamay's father, Malya Teamay, is well-known artist, Board Member and Spokesperson for the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Malya has recently passed on to Freda the right to paint his 'Broken Law Story' about the impact colonisation has had on traditional culture and the way forward to reconciliation.
