The Long Kiss Goodbye

Artists: Sarah Contos (NSW), Penny Coss (WA), Iain Dean (WA), Brent Harris (VIC), Clare Peake (NT) and Michelle Elliott with Tender Funerals (NSW).

This exhibition explores how artists transform familiar materials and symbols into complex meditations on love, loss, attraction and repulsion: the ashes of visual diaries become ceremonial jewellery, fragments and studio scraps become an epic patchwork of memories, and simple actions become poignant rituals.

Presented in association with Perth Festival, this evocative exhibition features a group of artists from around the nation, each with a unique connection to Western Australia.
