Linden New Art is proud to present RIGHT FIRE, an exhibition featuring large format photographic works by contemporary artist Lucille Martin.
In 2018-21, Martin was invited to observe fire initiatives that focus on the revival of ‘Good fire’ practice on Gumea Dharawal Country, as Artist in Residence at Bundanon Trust, NSW. RIGHT FIRE evolved over several days spent with Elders and Indigenous Fire practitioners photographing cultural burn practice to emphasise the significance of learning about Indigenous Fire knowledge.
