AFTER (Art From The Extended Region) Black Saturday Memorial.
Positioned on the northern side of Kyneton Town Hall, facing the direction of the Redesdale fires that burned 10 000 hectares, destroyed 14 homes, Sidonia church and Kennedy's Bridge.
Black and grey tiles surrounding the emotive fire scene include distorted glass, molten metal and blistered ceramics salvaged from fire affected properties in the local area. Contributions from fire affected communities across Victoria were also included in one whole row alternating with white word tiles.
Donations from supportive neighbours, family and friends were contained within the gum leaf cavity in coloured tiles - dark represented homes nearby; mid colours signified regional towns and light indicated interstate and international connections.
