Ceremony for Lost Natural Connections

Critical Animals

In this temporary activation, mosquito coils are burnt at dusk as part of a ritual exploring lost connections to nature. Sandalwood, used in creating mosquito coils, is used widely in rituals across the Asia-Pacific, and is burned in order to enhance feelings of groundedness and connectedness, in addition to its insect deterring properties. In Australian post-colonial context, is the act of burning coils a symbol of our inability to connect with our environment, or are our small-scale backyard rituals useful actions for allowing subtle reflection and connection?
