OFF-SHELL

2019

Single-channel video, sound, 3m 27s

A danse macabre.

The work is a revisitation of the theme of memento mori, used in the late Middle Ages to invite to reflect on mortality and the transitory nature of matter and earthly things.

The artists scanned their bodies to create 3D models, later replacing the faces of the models with skulls. The motion capture animation of these digital bodies gives life to an impermanent danse macabre, suspended in space and time.
