The Long Kiss Goodbye

‘The Long Kiss Goodbye’ explores the way artists re-imagine familiar materials and symbols to ruminate on love, loss, attraction and repulsion. Artists Sarah Contos, Penny Coss, Iain Dean, Michele Elliot with Tender Funerals, Brent Harris and Clare Peake present an evocative exhibition of works that give new life to the ashes of visual diaries as ceremonial jewellery, turn fragments and studio scraps into an epic patchwork of memories, and transform simple actions into poignant rituals. Presented in association with Perth Festival.
