Modern Mourning

Viewing Gallery

With the aim to further open the taboo around death, dying, and bereavement, we partnered with our friend The Griefcase for a special project, wherein we invited Artists' and the public to submit an artwork in response to the theme Modern Mourning. 

On this page you will find all of the artworks which were created in response - starting with the invited Artist' submissions, followed by the Open Submission response, and finishing with the selection of pieces which were made for a special 'One Minute Briefs' takeover of Modern Mourning.

We'd like to thank everyone who interacted with the brief, and took time to create an artwork to express their thoughts and feelings around loss. There are a range of perspectives, stories and voices here, all engaging with, and communicating what can be a very difficult thing to put into words alone.
