|My work seeks to make death visible, with all the pain and suffering
that fatal illnesses entail, but also with the certainty that a final farewell
in dignity is possible. I want to show death as something common and
tangibly ubiquitous in the real world.
My project shows people living in
a hospice over a period of one year. People come, people go. Some
stay longer, others shorter. The course never follows a straight line.
The seasons change, the light changes, the colours change. The
people live their lives, become weaker, die. Some of them get to know
and like others in the hospice. For the individual, the story of life
always ends with death. For others, for family members, for people
outside this experience, life goes on.
People die. People are born.
