Stages of Life 2019

In this immersive visual art experience, the audience is taken on a journey through the stages of life. A contemporary exhibition in which the artists have been encouraged to take on a personal understanding of the subject of life, growth, aging and death.

With this open tomb we are reminded that death is just around the corner of life. A momento mori. In Europe we have traditionally buried our most valued, or most powerful, members of society in our churches. This artist’s tomb re-enacts this custom in which the gallery now represents our modern hallowed ground. The tomb is open and accessible, one can even step on it, yet, death and memory are the most elusive of concepts. The grave is activated every time a visitor walks over the grave and through the projector beam.
