LIVE FUNERAL
village Milivojci near town Vranje, Serbia

2000/02

 

Project was researching basic, in first place visual characteristics of burial ritual on a small village of Milivojce in southern Serbia. Subject well better said object of a burial was a sculprure of a man that I modelled out of mud and branches found on the site wich had proportions of an average man . He was named Živko , from serbian word ziv-alive.
Then I invited guests/friends in order to bury a man made of soil into the soil in a traditional way some of them being serving food and drinking at a grave and music during procession. This ceremony took place on the common grounds of the willage and passers-by participated or curiously fallowed the action.
