Lucia Usmiani Souvenir 2018 burnt matches  70 x 55 cm

In 2018 Lucia Usmiani was invited to create her version of the Parliament House building in Canberra to celebrate its 30 years anniversary 1988 – 2018. 

‘The burnt matches are poignant reminder of the deviating fire season that has gripped the nation to date and sadly symbolic of the federal governments apathy towards climate change’  Steven Joyce
