set at the moment in the graveyard-Forum Sihlfeld 27 items left by the Dead. How did it come to this exhibition?
The first impulse, we received a Text of the journalist Vivianne mountain. She wrote about the experience to clear the apartment of their mother after her death. I found the topic interesting, because it allows for a solid and factual access to our mortality. So we decided to take it in a Combination of poetry and practice. This, by the Andes stories of memory objects with facts.
Can you make an example for such a fact?
cleaning up after the death of a human being also has to do with a battle of material. A Entrümpler estimated that of a Person an average of 15-20 cubic meters of Material thrown away. In Switzerland, 67'000 people die every year. We expect that, leave the dead every year Material in the amount of five Prime Towers.
What should the visitor experience during the tour?
I think it allows for an examination of one's own finitude, and thus, what will happen to us. For me, the exhibition has triggered, too, that I have now less Material than before.
The exhibition has met with great interest. Why would the issue affect the people?
I realize that it affects many people – from the SC-55, the need to say goodbye to their parents, to young people, the experience, as the some of moves into the retirement home. For several rooms, after the death of a experience, which is dramatic. The world of a people is resolved, often under time pressure, in a time of grief. And the Clearing away of objects can trigger a big grief waves.
You're in the middle of it, and each hand grip closer to the Moment where you will be without these people. It hurts, but it also has something Healthy. Grieving must practically and mentally, to establish a new order. You decide not only to keep this hat or those letters to throw it away, it is also the question of which values one wants to take over from the deceased and what he leaves behind.
Also, you have contributed an item for the exhibition.
Yes, a Pyjama for my sister. She was an eloquent and brilliant lawyer. In this night gown I feel a little of what you saw from the outside.
you Had no trouble, the pajama to the Public to disclose?
she died almost 19 years ago for a while. And why should I not share something that touched me. The stories make palpable what it is. They also have an openness. Our stories may contribute to it, that other people can consider how you want yourself a reminder, select pieces.
What to keep as a reminder?
the objects that have borrowed from private persons, I notice that the meanings of these items have little to do with economic or Benets. Rather, it is attachment to something, which distinguished the deceased, especially, perhaps, properties of ancestors, with which someone identifies.
What is the strategy able to track members in the spaces?
there Are strategies that will fit for all? Some professionals recommend, in the case of the bulky stuff to have a great success experience. I realized how complex this whole Triage. With a myriad of items must be decided: I give away or sell I keep, the goes to Brockenhaus or is directly disposed of. An eviction strategy could consist of everything unique to these different categories. I find inspiration in what made one of our lenders inside: things you found any new places, put them in a small glass case.
"The last order. The dead leave things" in the graveyard-Forum Sihlfeld take to 28. November. In the morning, and jeweilen on the first Tuesday of the month we offer a guided tour through the exhibition. (Tages-Anzeiger)
