In honour of the forgotten, misplaced, unrecovered and removed the artist presents a stylized ‘corpse-washing’ ritual over nine hours. In an age when media connectivity means we can no longer claim ignorance to global human tragedy we are often left feeling ineffective and powerless. In this work, voluntary participants each put a face to a number, a presence to a concept and collectively return the cold hard statistic of a death toll to the flesh and blood of an individual and what it means to be mortal.
