Comprising photographic documentation captured between 2018 and 2021, while Artist in resident at Bundanon Trust, NSW, RIGHT FIRE explores the revival of ‘Good fire’ practice held on Gumea Dharawal Country. The Fire programs were activated by Bundanon Trust on behalf of Firesticks Alliance by Uncle Noel Webster, Elder of Yuin-Walbunja-Murramarrang Country and the Wodi Wodi Traditional Custodians of the Yuin Nation.
In 2018, during the first of two artist residencies with Bundanon Trust, Martin was invited to observe the inaugural Indigenous fire initiatives and cultural burn program undertaken in the lead up to the 10th National Indigenous Workshop on Gumea Dharawal Country, South Coast NSW.
Martin’s immersive large format works explore her passion for our natural environment contributing to the wide reaching changes underway to save Country and restore damage incurred by climate change while generating significant environmental, social and cultural benefits in the process. Martin firmly believes Indigenous custodians hold the link in our fight against the climate crisis.
