In Hungary just as in other western cultures, people live in a death denying society. The weakening of religion, the development of medicine and urbanization all affected the relationship between man and death. In pop culture passing away is almost everywhere, we have seen hundreds of deaths on the screen, while in real life we might haven’t seen a single one. At the heart of my work, memento mori, are the workers of the death industry. I was wondering how people, who work with the concept of death on a daily basis, can relate to their own existence. What kind of impression do workers have on the factory and how does this work affect their physical and mental state? I was fascinated by these people because they haven't got the choice to deny death. I visited a coffin and an urn factory, and I worked together with two gravediggers during the project. All through the months I got to know them better and discovered a grotesque duality between the workers and their work. At the same time, seriousness and absurd humour are present. This ambivalent mood is the basis for my series.
