GOOD GRIEF is part of an ongoing investigation into the processes that deal with loss and grieving as an attempt to regain a sense of control and ownership of the self. This video is one part of a larger installation that aims to open up notions of societal resistance surrounding the actuality of death and explores the personal experience of human grief in its stages through aggressive, cathartic, comedic and masochistic measures. These performative rituals are symbolic of the devices or acts that one conjures in order to reconstruct life after death, enabling one’s self to keep on living.
