My father believed that venerating humans after death was problematic so he instructed us to make no shrines for him. This command from my late father inspired this installation. “NO SHRINES” is a cheeky and oxymoronic response to my father’s request in the face of my bereavement and explores the paradoxical relationship between final wishes and grief. Using shrines and memorials as a form of street art forces the viewer to examine how we honor the dead and engage in rituals that help us make sense of the nonsensical nature of mortality.
