Memento Mori

Dear friends:
Pepón Osorio just finished his beautiful installation at PAFA. It consists of an x-ray image of a skull, done with a special inkjet printer onto a thick layer of confetti. The image comes from a highly personal source, and it is meant to be a memento mori, a rumination of the frailty and brevity of life. Over time the image might break down further.
Also referencing death in the form of skulls and bones is Virgil Marti's work, a wallpaper installation which will cover one of the galleries at Moore, which can be seen from Race street. It will be complemented with a plush ottoman, and a mirror ball.
J. Roca.
