Memento Mori




Memento Mori

Series of colour photographs

2019, AVA

The Memento Mori series of photographs, captured using long

exposure technique, deals with themes of transience and eternity, life and death, body and soul. A woman transforms into

a ghost and slowly fades away. The series was inspired by a

phenomenon called ‘astral projections’ that has been happening

to me a lot in the past few years. In that state one has another

body, shaped exactly the same as the physical one, that can

get out of the sleeping physique and float around. It is difficult

to explain, however, I tried to capture the moment of leaving

one’s body in this work, when dying, meditating or experiencing

an astral projection. The series of photographs was made as a

project at the Academy of Visual Arts, AVA and was exhibited at

the AVA 011 Exhibition in 2019.

Hannah Koselj Marušič (1996) je absolventka vizualnih umetnosti, na Akademiji za vizualne umetnosti - AVA, v Ljubljani. Pred tem je nekaj let študirala medicino na UL MF. V vsem kar počne, išče prostor najbolj resnične resničnosti. Zanima jo tisto stanje med znanim in neznanim, zavednim in nezavednim, življenjem in smrtjo, stanje, ko se prek slike ‘objektivne’ realnosti začnejo izrisovati še neke druge možnosti, ki potekajo vzporedno. V svojem umetniškem izrazu se večinoma giblje znotraj medijev fotografije, videa, instalacije in performansa. Poezijo piše že od osnovne šole. Nekaj njene poezije je dostopne na portalu LUD literatura.
