The ritual of mourning is an ever-changing, ever-evolving concept in Western society. As we move faster towards an uncertain and hyper-accelerated future, as a collective we're frequently rediscovering and reconfiguring our fascination with mortality and memory. How will we be remembered when we die and is the end truly near? Questions like these are typically met with few answers. The Victorians reveled in the aftercare of death; they celebrated it with morbid fanfare and idolization of the deceased, later the post-war mentality saw to a collective belief in the West's preconceived notion of monetary immortality but in 2017 a safe and stable future is no longer promised - we often find ourselves questioning our roles in the future at large. My tether is clipped, seeks to understand contemporary rituals of remembrance and understand how they are represented through the works of three international artists working within the confines of video and sculpture.
