BLINK Gallery presents
Practice saying goodbye
August 9 – 12
Thursday, August 9, 6 – 9 pm
How do we convey our loss? How do we say goodbye?
Flowers serve as mementos, helping us celebrate and pay tribute.
Gardens offer a space to experience life, loss and regeneration. This
photographic-based installation quietly reflects on living, dying and
preservation. A contemplation on life – how we contain it and how it
contains us. A garden of flowers that never decays.
My work is an act of storytelling that explores the dualities of life.
I seek to capture the experiences and emotions that we share
collectively as human beings but often experience in isolation. I
create scenes and situations of architecturally and emotionally
fragmented interiors. Like a diary entry, each piece questions and
reflects, recounting the moments that form personal history and
MEAGHAN HAUGHIAN’s work primarily consists of mixed media drawings on
