Nude with Skeleton, 2002-2005

I chose this piece because I find it powerful. It was repreformed continuously in shifts during its exhibition for a total of over 700 hours. It was exhibited at the MoMA. This exhibit was influenced by Buddhism, where monks sleep besides the dead while the body decays in order to understand death. It find it powerful the depiction of facing the fears of death and mortality. I love how it shows that death is apart of life, through animating the skeleton by her own movements. People tend to forget this and fear the unknown instead of embracing it.
