Mourning Glory examines and celebrates cultures of death and how to find life in decay and beauty in the transformation of energy and matter.
Through understanding of the physical and spiritual transition we can come to accept the humblest and purest of truths: that when we die, we give birth. As we sacrifice we ascend. We are always co-creating.
Those ‘things’ that make us uncomfortable hold a great and overlooked power as they challenge our own assumptions and preconceptions. In a mindset of non-judgement, we might glean truth about our own deeply held (and often invisible) values when we interact with contrary items and ideas from other eras and perspectives.
Please note: this is not intended as bereavement counselling. It is rather, a creative approach to working with and celebrating the concept of memento mori.
