In his book Immortality, Milan Kundera made an incisive remark: “To be mortal is the most basic human experience, and yet man has never been able to accept it, grasp it, and behave accordingly. Man doesn't know how to be mortal. And when he dies, he doesn't even know how to be dead.” The exhibition will question clichéd responses, sayings, and ideas on death. Opening: September 29, 2017, Srečišče Gallery, Metelkova 8, Ljubljana.
