‘Mortuarium loop’ reflects on tangible settings as sites of transcendence, where death enters the body, where the body was and is no longer, where absence occurs, where imagery of ephemerality and heaven overlaps with material decay and the observance of grieving rituals. It transmutes lived spaces into frames for loss and eternity. It occurs through a hand-attended process of removal.
