Memento Mori

- a curated group exhibition, 2008






Memento Mori

24 June - 12 July

Brenda May Gallery

Exhibition Price List

A memento mori is an object that is kept as a reminder of the fact that death is inevitable. The term originates from Latin and translates loosely as ?remember (that you have) to die?.

The idea that a work of art can function as a memento mori is a central theme of this exhibition. More broadly however, the artists in this show examine the place of memory in art - art as memorial, as memento and as keepsake.
