Marina and the Whale

The residency (Fjuk Arts Centre) is run by Marina and Sam Rees, both artists in their own right.

Marina returned earlier in the week after a small pilot whale had washed on shore (written previously here). Her own work circles around installations including bones from deceased animals. Stage one of this project for her is the obvious cleaning of the bones after they had had the flesh stripped from them, a stinky process on its own.

I was highly interested in her work, mainly due to the fact that she was working with death, and in that spectrum, life.
