Philippa Jones: Suspended
In this immersive installation, Philippa Jones considers how we understand death – how we approach it, and how we envision what comes after. Drawings, paintings, sculpture, and interactive technology combine to create a space in which viewers can reflect upon their own ideas of loss and mourning. Originally from the United Kingdom, Philippa Jones’s artistic practice explores imagined realities and active myth making. This solo exhibition marks a significant new body of work by a nationally-celebrated St. John’s artist, and is accompanied by a publication with essays by award-winning Newfoundland author Meg Coles and Darryn Doull, Curator of Canadian Art (The Rooms).
