Fiona Lee, Studio installation

Unpreparable

Overview

Artist and climate justice activist Fiona Lee lost her family home near Taree to the catastrophic bushfires in November 2019. She was compelled to respond to comments at the time from the Deputy Prime-Minister that the idea of linking climate change to the ongoing bushfire crisis were “the ravings of pure, enlightened and woke capital city greenies.” Days later, Fiona and her family arrived on the steps of the NSW parliament armed with a bucket full of ash from what was left of their home and demanded government acknowledge the link between the fire storms, the resulting devastation, and climate change. This exhibition is a very personal, raw and challenging response to the Bushfire crisis. Fiona is shaping works from her home’s scorched remnants; collecting, categorising and sorting through ash and detritus from the site where her family home once stood.
