Lamentation is an exhibition by Brisbane-based, multi-disciplinary artist Karike Ashworth. This sensitive and beautiful exhibition delicately addresses the often uncomfortable subject of illness and death. Drawing from her personal experience of living through her mother’s illness, Ashworth combines the exquisite beauty of hand-crafted stitching and embroidery with the utilitarian uniformity of hospital linen to create an installation that is both enlightening and confronting.
This exhibition tour is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queenland
