'Into the Piguenit, Redux' revisits a work first exhibited in Hobart 1996. Through the exploitation of disparate materials, this site-specific installation challenges our senses and addresses contemporary issues of how we respond to landscape, time and space. This consideration is achieved through a hauntingly provocative yet contemplative comparison of the pristine Australian bush landscape with the demise of war torn landscapes and zones of conflict, such as Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan etc. and more explicitly the Temple of Baalshamin in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.

Though his artworks pull audiences in with their intricacy, beauty and attention to detail, the motivation behind Clarke's work is a concern for human welfare. More specifically, Clarke has been involved with and inspired by Project Renew for some 14 years, a not for profit, Vietnamese mine risk education and UXO removal and demolition organisation.
