Erin Wiersma's "Konza Works on Paper" are created during a fire in the form of a performance in the Konza Prairie (Kansas). Close to the fire and on the traces of the former waterways, she works with the easily combustible material paper. The artist is herself the medium that creates something completely new and immediate, taking into consideration the natural elements of wind, temperature and humidity. Just as crucial to the state of matter of each of her artworks is the element of time, the scheduling of the fires in the respective regions. Erin Wiersma's artistic practice stems from an interest in the history of the prairie as a place of its former inhabitants, its flora and fauna, and an expression of a deep connection to its landscape.
