campFIRE WATERhole

campFIRE  WATERhole 2011. Artists Lennie Hayes, Frances Harrison and Catherine Larkins  were commissioned to design and make of these two interrelated works. The creation of the work also brought together Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people from the Lakes Entrance community to participate in their construction. Fire and water are important healing elements in Aboriginal culture, the campfire and waterhole have created powerful healing and gathering sites in the health centre precinct.
