Poppy Mardall: death is so removed

Poppy first saw a dead body at 27 when she decided to set up a funeral directors, one that helps us think differently about loss, grief and death. Death lurks in the shadows, haunting us. She works to bring death into clearer view;  bearing witness to lives that have ended and the emotions of those who are saying goodbye. This is heart work, she says.  Made by Jo Barratt. Conceived by Jo Barratt and Gemma Mortensen, with Iris Andrews and Lily Piachaud.   Music is made for New Constellations by Art School Girlfriend.

For millennia, across cultures and continents, we have looked to the stars to navigate when we are lost. Celestial bodies have exerted a magnetic pull over our lives and imaginations. In this era of transformation, in which everything is in flux, we are locked onto old stars that are pulling us in a perilous direction. We need to discover new stars, new possibilities, and reset our course. New Constellations exists to help people imagine and create a future in which humanity and the planet can flourish together; to find and illuminate new constellations of hope and possibility towards which we can orient our lives. We invite you to meet and journey with some of the many pioneering people and communities whose thinking, work and practice shines light on the way ahead.
