Fire and Roots 3

James Darling and Lesley Forwood are farmers and artists from the Keith district in South Australia. In April 2011 they installed an artwork, Fire and Roots 3, made from the gnarled roots of mallee eucalypt trees into the Keith exhibit of the new Landmarks gallery. The roots are from trees cleared by Darling and Forwood on their farm in the late 1970s. A monitor within the wall of mallee roots shows footage of the land clearing.
