"After-Hours" investigates the death of the human body and the correlated acts we perform surrounding mourning. While the living performs rituals of remembrance, in parallel time, the dead choreograph their process of decay. In contemporary societies we are more and more alienated from death, and consequently, from the dead body. "After-Hours" zooms into the physical after-life of a dead body: the whole transformation our bodies will go through from the moment we die. I create jewellery in the tradition of Memento Mori that capture some moments of this ‘dance macabre’, with the intention of making visible and opening discussion to the raw reality of our self-decay and self-mourning.
