Please note this item is pick-up only. The Powerhouse team will notify you when it is ready for collection at Powerhouse Ultimo.
Pyriscence: After Fire (Perfume) is an editioned perfume of Anna May Kirk’s artwork of the same title in Eucalyptusdom. A handblown glass perfume bottle ― a material transformed by fire and breath ― is filled with the scents of various species of Eucalyptus previously found in the Powerhouse Eucalyptus plantation at Castlehill, soil after rain, bushfire smoke, lightning and English Rose. Through scent, the artwork and poetic atmospheres are drawn into the internal space of the body, connecting us and the Eucalyptus through the very air we breathe.
Availability is strictly limited, with each of the 9 perfumes in this first release accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Scent formulated in collaboration with Ainslie Walker.
Commissioned by Powerhouse Museum, 2021.
