Icons in Ash, Reimagine Death an evening with art, songs and spoken word about dying, death, grieving, consoling and remembering. This event is in conjunction with Let's Reimagine End of Life, a week long festival of exploring death through +300 exhibits, performances, and discussions.
All performances are inspired by Heide Hatry's Icons in Ash memorial portraits made of cremated remains. Hatry wants to reintegrate life and death: to touch death, work with death, to let it speak in its mundanity, its grandeur, its familiarity and its mystery, its uniqueness and its universality, to redeem it from oblivion, to give it its own life again.
Artists, Musicians and spoken word performers include: Queen Esther, Vanisha Gould, John Hudak, John S. Hall, Christine Isherwood, Hot Glue & The Gun (Carrie Klein and Joel McGlynn), Jane LeCroy, Anthony Haden-Guest, Joel Simpson, Sophie Malleret, Taylor Lee Price and the Indiggo Twins.
