RAV - Illuminated by Fire - Lakes Entrance http://www.rav.net.au/storyboard/blog/lakes-entrance In Lakes Entrance, a remarkable collaboration took place between installation artist Catherine Larkins and aboriginal artists Lennie Hayes and Frances Harrison. They produced three cross-cultural art works which explore contemporary and traditional understandings of fire and water. The permanent camp-FIRE WATER-hole installation and the re-locatable FIRE-place and chimney offer a unique view of the modern-day present and the nation’s ancient past. The FIRE-place is part of a greater lounge room setting that includes a kangaroo skin couch, a TV screening Aboriginal campfire footage, a dog and an electric ’briquette fire’. The surfaces are transformed into a stunning canvas of stories from Gunai/Kurnai country about the timeless cycles of fire. The project launched Friday November 26 at 6.30pm at Gippsland Lakes Community Health, 18-26 Jemmeson St Lakes Entrance. FIRE-place was displayed in the BMW Edge at Fed Square for the week of the Melbourne installation, beautifully juxtaposed with the modern architecture.
