With almost no documentation and no extant residues, Tim Burns? Minefield is a relatively unknown and perhaps unknowable work of art. But it is also a problematic insurgence, unassimilated by the poetics and polite ecology of site-specific art. In the genealogy of the? expanded field? of its time and even the? new materialism? of today, this minefield is a plot hole ‘a breach and discrepancy ‘more pyroclastic than iconoclastic. This book summons four writers from four different perspectives to revisit, recharge and detonate anew Tim Burns? Minefield. Editor: Edward Colless Essays by Lucy Bleach, Donald Brook, Justin Clemens, Helen Hughes Minefield is the first book in an ongoing series of special projects, each providing in-depth consideration of a major Australian work of art.
