Ars(e) Moriendi – Installation by Peter Cramer
A multi media installation that draws from Latin texts and images of the Ars moriendi (“The Art of Dying”), The Golden Ass and more contemporary weavings on similar tropes. It is about transformations of magic, flesh and spirit. A chamber of consolation where temptations of sin will be illuminated and resolved.
