Catherine Bell artwork


Death is often an uncomfortable topic, but as an inevitable part of life, it’s something that we should seek to find comfort with.

Bone is intrinsically linked to the concept of life and of death, and this event seeks to explore how we can transform it from simply a material, into a concept that collectively connects us.

Join us at MPavilion with artist Catherine Bell as she guides us to sculpt a personal memento to loss and grief, death and dying—and the ways we cope with it that fundamentally make us human.

Participants are also invited to engage in a reflective conversation addressing concepts around bone, and the topic of death, led in part by professor Tamara Kohn from the DeathTech team at The University of Melbourne. 

This event has been developed as part of the M_Curators, an MPavilion program engaging young makers, doers and programmers.

Audiences are advised that this event includes topics and content that may be confronting or distressing for some people
