Listening Burning explores anthropogenic fire regimes. The apocalyptic scenes of the 2019-2020 bush-fires saliently brought the Anthropocene to the fore, as the fires destabilised the human-centred story. Listening Burning, listens to both the Custodians of the lands that I live on and to the non-humans who I live-in-the-world-with.
I respectfully acknowledge the Ancestors of the Country and the Custodians of the lands that I live on, the Brayakaulung people of the Gunaikurnai Nation and pay respect to Elders past, present and future.
Louisa Waters‘ practice is concerned with the space where history and landscape intersect; where memories and discourses produced by people and places create ideology, and how ideology transforms land and informs notions of place. She is a PhD candidate at Charles Sturt University.
