Tamara Henderson will deliver an artists presentation, Corpse Reviver which, through a cast of characters Maze Esteem, Sea Bronze, Wake of Limbs, Question Mark Mug and Drift Statuary, investigates the relationship of writing to the other elements of her practice. Her practice necessitates 16mm film, sculpture, painting, and printed matter, maintaining an affirmative pursuit towards hallucinatory plot twists, a labyrinth dedicated to the idea of scrutinizing sculpture as character. She decodes and transforms her nocturnal journalism and “evergreen minutes” into sprawling cryptic screenplays to conclusively embody them in form, and film.

Born in Sackville, New Brunswick, in 1982, Tamara Henderson studied at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax and the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. She holds a Masters Degree from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
