LET’S TALK ABOUT DEATH, STRANGER
“In January 2016 I found myself for more than three hours stuck in the Brooklyn Art Library in New York – reading through a lot of sketchbook projects created by artists all over the world. When the librarian came to my table and kindly told me they were closing I knew I had to buy one of their Sketchbooks.
Back in London I decided to dedicate a full month on filling the sketchbook, however, not by myself but by strangers. Every other day in February I would ask a person, stranger to me, to write or draw something in my sketchbook regarding death, dying or mortality. I never thought it would be such a difficult task to set for myself and for the people I met – I received a lot of ‘no’s’ and sometimes I felt to overwhelmed to ask another stranger. But, it became a very challenging and inspiring month in where I have met beautiful people and heard so many different opinions and views regarding to death and dying.”
In the summer of 2016 the pictures were exhibited in the Deptford Cinema.
The 30th of May 2017 the pictures were exhibited as part of MedFest.
