Resident Alien

Tim Burns (WA)

Tim Burns is a legendary figure in the history of underground Australian art. He rose to notoriety in the early 70s with a series of (literally) explosive art actions. Resident Alien is his latest artistic contention, a bold statement on the nature of invasion. With his fully mobile situationist film unit, the artist charts a history of oppression in Australia that stretches from the brutalities of colonial settlement all the way to the influx of art into the West End for High Tide itself.

This artwork will appear at the High Tide Hub on a continual loop, alongside Seaborn and Abracadabra.
