This special book presents 41 sculptural works that function together as a series entitled ‘The Wake’. Embodying emotive and sensitive subjects, this series is unpacked through a selection of essays.
Created by Nell during a period of mourning, the individual works in the series mark a distinct effigy that together point to the overarching complexities of love and loss. In her contributing essay, art historian Julie Ewington describes the body of work as a “maelstrom of joy and tears, emoji grins as well as grimaces.” With the work now a part of the Art Gallery of South Australia collection, this publication offers a unique view point to the powerful ideas connected to ‘The Wake.’
