Ellie Harrison's All That Lives: The Story So Far

About the event

Award winning film maker Brett Chapman and Static Flow Productions document Ellie Harrison's thirteen year body of work on The Grief Series and what it means to lay it rest. Traditionally we have funerals for humans. Sometimes for animals. Nearly always we are marking a heart-stopping, a heart of some size. An ending of a set period of living. It is not nearly so traditional to mark the end of other things. Let us be clear then. This is a funeral for an art.

A mixed media documentary to be screened as part of our programme with Centre For Live Art Yorkshire with some live art surprises along the way. Every funeral needs a procession and glitterbomb dancers are here to help. Of course we couldn't make a documentary about The Grief Series without capturing the final day of All That Lives so be a part of sending The Grief Series out in style.
