Incendiary is an exhibition that responds to the firing of industrial incinerators and combustion fallout on human and more than human ecosystems. Curated by Patricia O'Brien, the work by selected artists is about our ecological crisis.
Fiona Campbell made her installation piece Pyre in response to the catastrophic Amazon and Australian wildfires earlier this year. Pyre comprises a collection of lovingly wrapped and bound charred bundles. Each contains found objects that have some meaning or attachment to her - mainly natural. These have been offered up as sacrifices, remembrances, wailings, grief bundles.
Incendiary (set up just before lockdown) is now open until 7 Aug (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 11am to 4pm), with physically distanced measures in place.
