Megan Murphy & Greta Umbers

As grief is both a collective and an individual experience, Murphy and Umbers chose to produce independent bodies of work they would later integrate as one. 

In her practice, Umbers considers how the past informs the present, and how the body holds emotional memory.

Before the minute of 16:34 | 16:35 Murphy’s art practice was focused on the threads running between universal consciousness and the self, and what role epigenetics plays in how intergenerational transmission impacts our lives. 

Murphy’s previous series - Sand Marks explored the connective thread of past and future. They were an unrecognised premonition of that final minute.
