Adobe Books Parting Practice Workshop
November 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This workshop arrives at the close of the Day of the Dead and will focus on coming to terms with mortality and embracing ourselves as future corpses. Lindsay Tunkl wrote her book, When You Die You Will Not Be Scared To Die, as a response to her own fear of death and dying. The lists in her book are meditations, mantras, spells, promises, and ritual.
About the Artist: Lindsay Tunkl’s artistic practice has been described as absurd, over-emotional, healing, and tragic. In an attempt to understand the particular experience of the human life cycle during the Anthropocene (the societal moment that our species began contributing to its own demise) Tunkl uses her art practice as a way to connect and share in the heartbreaking realities we all inhabit in this contemporary moment. Drawing from her own irrational fears of the apocalypse, death, and intimacy, the artist has found that these topics – the things that scare us the most – are a platform for profound human connection and closeness.
