Two relational performances in Surry Hills, Sydney in 1998 and 2000, were created by Sally Gray and Sydney artist Astrid Spielman. Fire was employed as a medium to invite focus, attention and concentration. The women present were invited to consider their pasts, presents and futures – in a temporal and spatial environment created for the purpose by Gray and Spielman. The focus in each case was on female subjectivity and agency.
