Synopsis


Afterlife reconfigures Warhol’s Silver Factory into the transient space between life and death, as imagined by the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Asking the public to follow simple choreography recorded on i-pods, which was then photographed and projected on the walls of the space, the installation transforms the casual living environment of the loft into a charged theatrical event. A meditation on perception, this installation juxtaposed the experiences of the participant, the viewers and the camera to poignant and, at times, humorous effect. Set to a soundscape of Warhol’s musings on art and death – encompassing everything from Valerie Solanas to the World Trade Centre – Afterlife becomes a vessel for the ordinary person’s expression, transforming the Everyman into a Superstar — a star that burns even more brightly as it dies.
