Abi Shehu & Gerta Xhaferaj “Nekrografi / Necrography”

More about “Necrography”

Cartographies of death, vapors of time. While necrology examines death as the limit event of human biology, necrography creates maps of different temporalities of death as eventness. There are many deaths, and such is the basic premise of the project, in humans, beyond and beneath them. Death graphs do not ask why do we die, but how one dies? Images acquire here the function of a map, but this mapping must not be imagined according to a spatial component but according to a temporal one. Therefore, it is not a kind of cartography that fixes certain territories, but that recreates through filmic and photographic languages the underground movements of surfaces. In this sense, images traverse the layers of space to write a geo-history of being, making the premise of this research both aesthetic and ontological.
