Dead Mother was initiated by Anne and Catriona Brodie. It aims to make concrete the hidden and ill-defined nature of the long-term effects of early bereavement.
Focusing on maternal loss in female adolescents now in later stages of their lives, film and photographs will attempt to make visible the efforts involved in successfully accommodating the absence of a mother over the duration of a lifetime, the 'imprint of absence'.
The first of the film outcomes will be shown at Danielle Arnaud contemporary art 20 June - 6 July 2014
Dead mother received R&D funding from the Wellcome trust in 2012.
