EXPLORING [ EULOGIES

EXPLORING [ TRAUMA 

EXPLORING [ C0-DEPENDENCY 

'Realized in live art and installations, the practice explores physical trauma, neurosis and catharsis through public engagement in the act of ritual.

 

Currently, the research has ventured into questioning the ethics behind Western burial techniques and how this specific capitalist burial market dehumanizes death and causes anxiety.

 

Most recent works explore the creation of eulogies and the tension between oral histories and digital archives. 

 

Investigating a reclaiming of tactility and intimacy  within death  culture and asks who is responsible to care for the dead. It critiques the questionable notion of debt possessing the power to keep a soul from being released or transcended and what this means in a digital age where agency is taken away from our personal information and digital mourning, digital ghosts and virtual embalming are becoming embedded within our understanding of grief and remembrance.'
