Curated by Noel Frankham, Svenja Kratz, Zoe Veness, and Kit Wise as part of TEN DAYS ON THE ISLAND

The exhibition, Remanence, draws together Tasmanian artists working across a range of media, including: installation, video, sound, painting, jewellery and objects, and sculpture. Motivated by the 50th anniversary the 1967 Black Tuesday bush fires in south-east Tasmania, the artists respond to and represent fire: its power to destroy, transform and rejuvenate.

Artworks work respond to how fire has shaped the landscape and affected the psyche of the people that occupy this land. The title, Remanence, creates links to continuance and remains, but also references the scientific meaning of the term and the concept of residual magnetism and invisible forces that linger long after an initial object or event.


Max Angus, Philip Blacklow, Lucy Bleach, Paul Boam, Neil Haddon, Dorita Hannah and Sean Coyle, Gay Hawkes, Kit Hiller, Jan Hogan, Bill Hart and Joe Shrimpton, Rob Long, Zoe Veness, Martin Walch and Kit Wise.
