LightNight Commission

A participatory project by Liverpool-based Japanese artist anti-cool exploring memorial objects, funerals and ceremonies from different cultures.

Ahead of LightNight and inspired by Japanese cremation ceremonies, burning rituals were held with local participants in which objects of sentimental value, donated by them, were cremated using primitive fire-making tools. The resulting exhibition consists of a multi-screen video installation made up of participants’ interviews showing their personal stories, why their objects were special to them and why they chose for them to be cremated.

This event is part of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-2020.
