Memento Mori: Poster

Poster for the dance performance Memento Mori by Park Na-hoon, Seoul Arts Center, 2008. Offset lithography, 594 x 840 mm.

Nine dancers perform a piece about the notion of life in death and death in life. The poster is meant to be sublime and ridiculous at the same time. Nine monolith-like shapes are combined with the silhouettes of plants, all set against a stock photograph of the sky: the kind of “inspiring” image that is often found in religious pamphlets and new-age literature.
