About

The installation explores the digital archive as  the space where the loss of subject hood occurs and manifests into a digital morning or an online funeral haunted by digital ghosts. Questioning the labor of women in relation to death. In many cultures women were responsible for creating narratives of the dead and conveying these to the next generations, a physical archive of their communities dead, as well as being chiefly responsible for the preparing and washing of the bodies for the rites of passage that was delivered by the men in their community. Through several screens and a live performance digitally archiving past stories of female death midwives, the installation explores the spaces in between where stories  are lost and asks how the internet of all things with its third party storing of personal information changes how we remember and grieve. 

Hannah Mary is a Live artist and community facilitator who explores trauma, neurosis and our relationship and responsiblity to death. She uses ritual to explore illness and death and open up discussion around our care of the dead in western culture. 

She is the Director of The Asylum Art Gallery Wolverhampton.
