How do we deal with our transient body? How 17 artist have thought about these questions in works of art, installations and videos. I exhibited the ritual, Dining with the Dead, in a wonderful, a ritual normally carried out during an All Souls’ Day celebration. It is a specially decorated table to which the dead are invited for dinner. We ask visitors to write a text on a plate, something that person always said at the table.
