Nell ; with words by Julie Ewington. Melbourne : Station, 2016. Quarto, illustrated boards, pp. 107, illustrated. Printed in an edition of 1000 copies. New copy.

The Wake is a gathering of spirits, relatives, friends and lovers. Culminating in the form of objects, the artist Nell explores binary opposites: life and death, happiness and sadness, light and dark. From its inclusion in the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art at The Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, to its current display at the Shepparton Art Museum in Victoria, ‘The Wake’ now also exists in this first book on Nell’s practice. This monograph includes words by Julie Ewington and images of the 41 works that make up The Wake.
