THANATOS - A MEDITATION ON THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE END OF LIFE
20 July to 12 August
I watched my Mother pass away as a result of Alzheimer’s disease, slowly and undignified. This experience challenged me to consider questions of how I would wish the end stages of my own life to take shape. This exhibition utilises floral settings as a metaphor for life, each arrangement aged for 10 days, allowing time and decay to become part of the composition.
Referencing the still life work of the Flemish Renaissance Masters, these works question concepts of life and death, and the choices that could exist within this space. They explore ideas of life past, and what the deterioration and ultimate end of life might look like.
