Reflected Legacy [EOL in Art 24]

CAPTURING someone’s life, especially when they are at their most vulnerable, is something Flutter Lyon does not take lightly.  The Australian artist’s program Reflected Legacy, captures stories and people’s lives through ink pressings
at Liverpool Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit.

On behalf of The Groundswell Project Flutter Lyon will spend three months in the unit talking with patients and their families about their past.  She will turn sound recordings from the sessions into artworks to be given as gifts to loved ones when the patient dies.
