Rest in Peace, screen and screen printing – London Is Dead, Oct 2016

Rest in Peace is a reflection on Life and Death, on Permanence and Impermanence.

The piece is composed of a video and three screen printed still frames: Head of Vyšehrad, Angel, Russian Cemetery and was presented at London Is Dead, event that we organised with VJLondon and the Dissenters gallery in the Kensal Green Cemetery. It’s also a project linking two of my arts: Live visuals and screen printing.

The images are from two cemeteries with different stories, different aspects and different feeling, the Soviet cemetery in Weimar, Germany and the Vyšehrad cemetery in Prague. The first one was create to buried soviet soldiers during the second world war and the second is the place were artists, philosophers, writers are resting. There’s also images of London, of life, people to complete the circle of Life & Death.

Process:
The video was made with a recorded set of live visuals.
Three chosen still frames from the video were screen printed on A2 format at very limited edition of 3 prints for each images.

I’ve chosen not to put sound on the video, since it was presented in a room with other videos and full of people.
