If we were to burn down all the buildings, poison our memories, obliterate nostalgia, undo all social connections, destroy our
anatomy and finally assign our useless bodies to a place marked ‘redundant’, what traces of relevance might we find in the void?

To make a work exploring death and dying is not an easy task.I am not interested in constructing a range of images which do no more than demonstrate grief. I have actively dismissed that which I consider to be a Victorian response to death and all the Gothic trappings that accompany such a view. I am not interested in horror, and yet I find my latest work a deeply frightening series of strategic conclusions to the task I set myself, to explore death and dying in both social, terms and also cellular themes.

-Robert Pacitti

Evidence of Life after Death comprised of three ‘outputs’ a book, an audio CD and a live performance, each with equal staus, they were all a publication.
