Eight: The Shift – Photography Exhibition by Christopher Young
10 August 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until 04/09/2020
Despite it being inevitable, death is not something we freely discuss. It is often seen as a taboo subject, especially intergenerationally. The passing of a loved one can be further complicated by the foreignness of the surrounding experiences.
‘Eight’ looks at end-of-life cultural experiences; how people respond to such experiences; and the environments and institutions they encounter. These experiences are universal, and this work has the capacity to extend dialogue, both within the arts as well as in connection to larger social issues.
Utilising spaces such as hospitals, doctors’ surgeries, funeral homes and churches, it looks at the paradox of highly-charged, emotive events in seemingly sterile and controlled spaces.
Displayed at the HEART from 7th August to 4th September 10am – 4pm.
Open Night: Held at the Margaret River HEART on Friday 7th August from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. It is a free event, and beverages will be available for purchase from the HEART Gallery Bar.
