Emerge in Yara 2018: Solo show by Stacey Korfiatis
on Friday 20th July 2018 at 6-8 pm. Exhibition will be held from July 18 - 29, 2018
It is a mix of new, existing, and in-progress work. The exhibition is designed to give an insight into the process of creating art whilst working with ongoing mental and physical health challenges.
It is an intersection of inspiration, opportunity, and optimism colliding with burn out - resulting in the artist calling a truce with her poor mental health, and negotiating a new resolution shown within this exhibition.
It is also an intersection of atypical representations: both the varied people and bodies on display in the artworks, and the mental and physical health of the artist.
