On Death and Dying 2012
On Death and Dying is a tribute to a brothers sudden illness and death.
Victoria explores the stages of grief; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance,
known as ‘the framework’ as life continues.
In this work, Victoria examines the end of a life experience, the loss of a future and behaviours associated with expressions of grief, all of which are culturally bound.
Birth, life and death, normal life events ….
Yet culturally we have developed ways in which to express this loss, with some possibly even interfering with the process, disrupting lives and the uniquely individual way in which grieving takes place.
