Ash (March)

[Installation] Open air and indoor show combined, titled ‘Ashes on an Old Man’s Sleeve’. Leave your valuables at the Entrance. Cloakroom near the sign “Your riches will eat your flesh like fire”. Admission free. Outdoor: wooden signboards crossed with ashes. Crosses wash off in rain and must be replaced with fresh ash. Each evening a bonfire is lit, hence vast circles of ash. The artist will pay for regrassing. Indoor: burnt car carcasses, &c. Boxes of high, medium, and low quality ash, a critic identifies as “black humour”. (The Age, 3 March) Fridge magnets and scorch-edged show catalogues at Exit.
