Event Details

Pheonix Gallery is delighted to announce Artist Talk: Mortality and Art. 

What is loss? Are we finite or infinite? With everyday activities and obligations, have we fallen into this maelstrom? Time can pass quickly and we are often left trying to overcome this experienced loss.

This event will feature presentations from artists Alex PeckhamRachael Allen and Lorenza Ippolito. Each artist will explore their views surrounding mortality and the influence it has on their practice. These presentations will be followed by an open discussion inviting the audience to explore concepts around morality, duration and our experience of life, ask questions and share their views on the subject.

This event is an integral part of the exhibition Memoria. Showing in the North Gallery at Phoenix Brighton from 1st - 23rd July, Wednesday to Sunday 11 am – 5 pm

Artist speakers

Alex Peckham

Alex Peckham

Alex is an artist whose practice encompasses sculpture, sound, light and moving image. Much of his work focuses on loss, mortality and the limited experience of life that each of us has. Within a realm of near-infinite possibilities we experience only a tiny fraction of the world we inhabit and yet many of our decisions are made as if we have an eternity. Alex seeks to explore these themes in his work as both a means of catharsis and also self-discovery.

Rachael Allen

Rachael Allen


We must confront aging, illness, dying, death and bereavement not simply as our inescapable realities but as messengers disclosing new dimensions of meaning. And it is creativity that provides the perfect tools for this life work. Combining practice, research and service as visual artist and carer, I create space for verbal, visual, sensorial and energetic conversations between human bodies and beings, and the time to exchange ideas, experiences, perceptions and beliefs about what matters most, what is so very human.

Lorenza Ippolito

Lorenza Ippolito


Lorenza Ippolito is a visual artist working with still and moving image to create art works that focus on themes of identity, belonging and nostalgia. Her current practice also engages with and explores the idea of public conversation through bringing together the artist and the audience in the same temporal and geographical space. All Ippolito’s work involves substantial research and development and relies on building relationships with communities over long periods of time.
