Memorial Garden in Lofoten
MetadataShow full item record
Memorial Garden is an informal funeral space for passing and reminiscence, in confrontation with the forces of nature, staged in a steep landscape in Lofoten. The phenomena of thresholds expresses tension between two states, which has strong character of temporality, and can easily be associated with our presence on earth. A threshold is a place at which something starts, and something ends. It is two things at the same time; an ending and a beginning. Our time being alive can be seen as a threshold space between birth and death, and death as a threshold between life and afterlife. Death is part of presence and presence is something eternal, regardless of the existence of humans or other species. Even though we inhabit death, this is also part of an absolute order of nature, which remains.
