Marne Lucas / Bardo ∞ Project

I am here to reimagine...

My Story

I am a multidisciplinary artist and End of Life Doula. My practice spans photography, video, sculpture and social practice, working at the intersection of art and health, using conceptual overlaps: life’s energy, the body, mortality and transformation.

I am a multidisciplinary artist and End of Life Doula. My practice spans photography, video, sculpture and social practice, working at the intersection of art and health, using conceptual overlaps: life’s energy, the body, mortality and transformation. The Bardo ∞ Project explores creativity as a form of spiritual care in collaborations with terminally ill artists nationwide to establish their legacy. Western society doesn’t cope well with Death, we treat those with life limiting diseases in a fragile manner and not as themselves. I work with artists to make their lives vibrant, facilitating projects to honor them. I present relics from these journeys and educate the public about end of life care options. Bardo is a Tibetan word for the transition between death and rebirth. Terminal illnesses and the dying process are similarly "in between" states and are opportunity for introspection.
