Special guest presentation:
The End of Mourning: Osea Island. by Christina Lovey
Length – 19 mins
Made at the end of a reseach project into the re-presentation of grief, this work records a circular journey, a pilgrimage into the liminal experience, meditating and reflecting on the nature of loss and our ultimate mortality. Travelling to Osea Island, a tidal island in the estuary of the River Blackwater becomes a metaphor for the journey from life to death.
