Scaled dsc 4173 print by shaun ferraloro 2
West Australian artist Marijke Loosjes presents an honest and raw depiction of the various stages of grief and the steps taken in attempt to heal. Through an array of conceptual performance pieces and visual artwork, references are made to various mourning practices with a strong focus on those of the Victorian Era. Exploring the mental state of one's mind amidst grieving, Loosjes shares the detrimental rituals that ultimately inhibit the healing process. DROWNING is an intimate and beautifully cathartic experience for both the artist and the audience.
