Event description

Description

Open Source #07 artist Marie Smith will be showing her series ’Blown out like a candle’ alongside her ongoing projects addressing the layered relationship between mother and daughter and is informed by Simone de Beauvoir’s memoir A Very Easy Death.

Marie’s mother travelled from Jamaica with her older brother to join her parents in the UK in 1967, where she lived and had a family. After the sudden death of Marie’s mother in 2015, her final resting place was chosen by Marie as she sought to reframe the narrative of her mother’s identity and migration. The images and text illustrate the landscapes that define us, and the landscapes between us.

The talk will end with a Q & A session and refreshments will be available throughout.


All welcome.
