Exhibit explores end of life dreams, visions and emotions
June 8, 2018

A moving exhibition of photographs from those receiving palliative care is now open at the Port of Sale.

The Dreamers is presented by Wellington Shire Council and sponsored by Palliative Care Victoria, which is an exhibition detailing the lives of those who know their lives will soon end.

The Dreamers is an exhibition about life, death and dreams. It reveals the wisdom and belief systems of people who have a life-limiting illness with stories of brutal honesty and what they think will happen when they die.

Photographer Pippa Wischer asked 40 people receiving palliative care questions about life, dreams and dying. What gives them joy? Have they had dreams or visions about death or the hereafter? How do they feel about dying?

Photographing them while they answered these intimate and complex questions, this series reveals the wisdom and belief systems of those living with life-limiting illness.

Part digital storytelling and part memento mori, the photographs, sound and words provide poignant and profound insights into the lives of those receiving palliative care, conveying what really matters to them at the end of their lives. An exhibition not to be missed!
