Dear Death is a letter written from Jana Seven to Death. By writing this letter in the form of art, the artist is attempting to reconcile herself with Death’s inevitability. The collection includes pieces of art that recollect children’s toys; a Jack in the Box, a doll house, hand puppets, but when we look closer we notice that Death is lurking in every corner. The room in the dollhouse is actually a Victorian medical classroom with students dissecting a corpse, the Jack in the Box delivers a sad reminder of our end, the wooden horse and cart carries the body of a dead woman.
This collection was created as a special exhibition at the Morbid Anatomy Library,
March 31st- April 2nd, 2023. The art will first be available at the show, and then in the Morbid Anatomy online shop.
