Death Café* 1.30-2.45 & 5.30-6.45

Hayley's practice visualises death and memorial. She works with soft sculptural forms, new media, performance and installation. Her split-level apartment will host two initiatives:

Upstairs, I Remember You invites viewers to engage with her one-on-one. Upon entering the space you will lie down on a cooling bed. While on this death bed, you are asked to contemplate an object/s that you will leave for someone once you are dead. Take a selfie and post #irememberyou alongside a hashtag of your object and who it will be left to, for example:
  #irememberyou #goldring #Ramona
  #irememberyou #ProHartPainting #anyone

Downstairs, A Death Cafe will serve biscuits, tea and conversation about death. The objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. It’s no small matter and no small movement. To date 15457 Death Cafes have popped up around the world. 

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group downstairs, and upstairs will be a death bed for one-on-one expereinces with Hayley and her cooling bed. Don’t be scared, it’s an uplifting experience. 

Hayley believes that acknowledging death and grief through a contemporary platform can only assist in spreading the word on death literacy.

Located in apartment G07 on Kendall Lane.
