Twin Spirit by Tina Fiveash

Artwork: Twin Spirit by Tina Fiveash

Artist/s statement

The afterlife, once the domain of religious and spiritual belief, is shifting into the realm of Western science in the 21st Century, as cutting- edge resuscitation technology is reviving people ‘back from the dead’, well beyond all previous definitions of clinical death. Returning back from what Shakespeare once described “the undiscover’d country”, survivors are routinely reporting profound auditory/ visual experiences occurring in the period when they had no heartbeat. Such paranormal experiences, referred to as ‘near-death experiences’ (NDEs), date back to the fourth century B.C. and are universally reported in their thousands today.

My practice-led research considers how such revelatory new understandings of the dying process might not only transform our belief systems around death, but also the way we picture death, dying, and the dead. Through the exploration of creative visual practice, I have investigated a range of digital photo-based approaches towards a contemporary re-imagining of death that engages in the question of an afterlife—in order to challenge assumptions about mortality and broaden perceptions of death and dying. My personal investigation of death and dying through photography is paralleled with an online socially-engaged research project titled “The Death Letter Project”, in which stories about death and dying are digitally captured and shared at
This exhibition brings together a decade of research and photography on the theme of death and mortality and includes photo-based works from “The Sweet Forever” and “We Could Be Immortals” series.

Artist/s statement 

The ‘My Mother’ exhibition ( #CCGmothersday2024) comprises works by 25 artists around the theme of their mothers. A wide range of media have been employed: ceramic, paint, embroidery, paper, felt, crochet, photography. This variety of materials speaks to the diversity of relationships and approaches on show here: some have investigated a certain aspect of their mother or their relationship with her, others have depicted a more symbolic, ‘cosmic’ mother. Come and see what each artist has brought to the table at this moving and intriguing exhibition. We have plenty of workshops and events happening too where there are opportunities to delve deep, have fun and express your own thoughts and feelings.

A percentage of takings will be donated to the Older Women’s Network, NSW (OWN)
With support from IWC (Inner West Council)
