This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Tai has asked for visitors to consider donating money to the Firesticks Alliance, an Indigenous led organisation that works with communities, land and fire agencies, and organisations across Australia on both cultural burns and contemporary fire management practices. Firesticks Alliance is raising money to train and mentor more than 100 cultural fire practioners with fire management and emergency response skills right across Australia. All country is different and locally appropriate cultural protocols and fire regimes are the key to success.

Adam Knapper uses painting and drawing to unravel the complexities of the human experience. This suite of artworks is a direct translation of the listening experience within the grounds of Bundoora Homestead. This series is process driven, short-circuiting the everyday repetition and saturation of imagery and sonic noise.

Knapper is a founding member of the Nimbus studio, an Arts Access collaboration based at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre. He has exhibited widely across Melbourne and is represented in a number of public and private collections and recipient of numerous awards.

Larundel is a series of photographs captured between 2001 to 2005 at the site of the former Larundel Psychiatric Hospital located adjacent to Bundoora Park. The hospital was closed in the late 1990s with most of the buildings being demolished to make way for a new housing estate. Only a few remain today and can be seen from Plenty Road, boarded up and overgrown. It was during this period nearly a decade ago that George Mifsud came upon, and began to document, its remnants.

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know.  – Diane Arbus
