To Burn, Forest, Fire Daily Incense Ceremony
10.00 – 10.30am, Wed 30 Nov 2022
Gallery of Modern Art & Bodhi Tree Terrace
- Wheelchair Accessible
Each morning throughout the ‘Air’ exhibition, the incense fragrances of Katie Paterson’s work To Burn, Forest, Fire 2021 are released during a ceremonial offering under the Bodhi Tree. The small incense sticks represent the first-ever forest and an imagined last-ever forest, with the wafting aromas transporting audiences across the vastness of evolutionary time.
The artist encourages you to dwell under the canopy of Lee Mingwei’s Bodhi Tree Project 2006 for the full duration of this sensory experience.
If attending this event, please purchase your timed-entry ticket to ‘Air’ for the 10.30am session or later.
