Manifesta purposely strives to keep its distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for the mapping of a new cultural topography.

The Dutch artist Jennifer Tee chose to work with an undertaker in creating this installation in a room at Enzenbühl cemetery. The work explored the relationship between mind and matter, body and soul and the transition between the physical materiality of a corpse and disembodied memory. It included sculptures, photographs and ethnographic objects from different cultures used in rituals surrounding death and burial.
