OPEN SOURCE #07
BLOWN OUT LIKE A CANDLE
01 MAY – 31 MAY / DIGITAL WINDOW GALLERY
Maria Ansell is our Open Source #07 artist with her series Blown out like a candle, which looks at the layered relationship between mother and daughter and is informed by Simone de Beauvoir’s memoir A Very Easy Death.
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. Marie will be presenting the series in conversation at the gallery later this month – tickets available below.
Marie is currently sharing her recent and ongoing work via our Instagram account this week – keep up with our takeovers and submit your own work to Open Source via the links below.
