In memory of MR 2015

 

 

This work began in 2012 shortly after the sudden and unexpected death of a dear friend, Matthias Rick. Initially as a print and then this animation. Each layer is a chapter of The Work of Mourning by Jacques Derrida, which I read on the U8 between home and Tempelhofer Feld where we were building The World is not Fair - Die Große Weltausstellung

After the opening of the World is not Fair I stopped working on it, put it away and I never finished it – somehow I never found the space, could not access the loss. The video is finished, the loss remains.
