Demolition Memorial Keepsake is a participatory project undertaken by Japanese artist anti-cool. A series of public workshops will explore memorial objects, funerals and ceremonies from different cultures. Inspired by Japanese cremation ceremonies, burning rituals will be held with local participants, in which objects of sentimental value, donated by them, will be cremated using primitive fire-making tools. The exhibition will consist of a multi screen video installation made up of participants’ interviews showing their personal stories, why their objects are special to them and why they have chosen for them to be cremated. Such videos also explore personal histories and local communities of Liverpool.
This project is commission by Open Culture for LightNight 2019.
