Tim Barlow with The Lime Burners

15 - 23 May 2021

The Lime Burners is a group exhibition and public programme hosted by the Dunedin Gasworks Museum with artists Tim Barlow, Jenny Hjertquist, Madeleine Child, Madison Kelly, Daisy Biscuit, Stuart Griffiths, Anna-Marie Mirfin, Patrick Ferris, Louisa Baillie, Gavin Thomson, Jenna Packer, Andrew Barsby, Ben Eyers, Rupert Morris, Dillon Waddell, and Marion Familton.
Lime materials have a curious history shrouded in mysterious cults, secretive guilds and forgotten knowledge. Fascinated by this 10,000 year old association between humans and quicklime, Tim Barlow has invited local artists to exhibit at the Gasworks and offer workshops and presentations over the weekend of May 15 and 16, as a way to reimagine the relationship between humans, technology and lime.
The kaupapa creates an active forum to experiment with lime alternatives as low carbon production processes and discuss solutions in the reduction of CO2 emissions in the artmaking and building industries.
We look forward to seeing you at the Gasworks for The Lime Burners!
