[Perspectives] Death becomes art

Death is certain yet its inevitability still challenges the bereaved. More people now die in hospital than in the past, so families are less likely to be involved in preparing bodies of loved loves for burial, which was a consoling mourning ritual for earlier generations. Textiles have a long history of use in preparing human bodies for interment. The exhibition Trauma, Grief, Loss: the Art of Bereavement at the Crafts Study Centre in Farnham, UK, explores how nine contemporary artists use fabric in works that allow bereaved people to mourn and come to terms with the loss of their loved ones.
