Young people aged 14 to 18 years are invited to join Tasmanian artist Anzara Clark in a series of ephemeral art workshops that explore death.
Death is part of life. But it is not always east to talk about. When words are not enough to express our feelings about death and loss, art can be a powerful voice. Make Your Mark: Death explores the transient nature of life and certainty of death in a series of art workshops and an exhibition on Mersey Bluff.
Make Your Mark is presented in partnership with Youth, Family & Community Connections, and supported by the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
Anzara Clark is an artist living and working on the North West coast of Tasmania. She uses textiles, paper and recyclables in sculptural, relief and garment based artworks that explore issues of cultural and individual identity, transience, memory, and transformative and critical human experiences.
Anzara has a particular interest in using art to start conversations about death, dying, grief and loss. Because of this, much of her work contains ephemeral elements and processes. In 2015 she has had two solo exhibitions on the North West Coast and has had work included in the Paper Garments for the Grave Exhibition. She has also facilitated the ‘Mourning The Missing’ Project.
