Minefield was a provocative installation by controversial Australian artist Tim Burns. The installation was part of the Mildura Sculpture Triennial in 1973 showcasing experimental art in Australia, but at dawn on the first day a frontend loader ploughed up and destroyed it. This collection of essays traverses a legendary work of Australian sculpture that was scandalous, formidable yet elusive, indeed feral, and with almost no evidence of it remaining. Essays by Lucy Blecah, Donald Brook, Edward Colless, Helen Hughes and Justin Clemens. Published by A+A (Melbourne).
