“Rhiannon created an interactive piece that asked participants sat around a table to perform actions on behalf of others in the audience. It represented the commemorative rituals we do for those who have died, and argues that it is those actions that make up their afterlife. This provided a jumping off point to explore how we do things for and on behalf of others as part of our online life, of private grief vs public ritual, and, crucially, who profits from digital acts of remembrance.” – Robin Kwong, head of digital delivery at the Financial Times
Actions from the Afterlife was a work in progress performance shared as part of the Contemporary Narratives Lab: an initiative by the Financial Times, Queen Mary University and People’s Palace Projects to explore the impact of creative partnerships between artists and journalists. It was presented at Battersea Arts Centre on 29 June 2018, alongside work by They Are Here, Coney, Conrad Murray, and Paula Varjack.
