Carry me back

We were going to do a post on artist painted coffins but got waylaid by this project of Olaf Breuning. It was done in association with Grizedale Arts in the UK which funded Breuning to have the coffins made in Ghana. He ordered three: a snowman, a chocolate bar and an ice-cream. To look at other coffins made in Ghana try here. And for an interaction challenge check out his website. He’s serious. The links are not clickable. You really have to type. Breuning visited New Zealand in 2001 and made Group with students from Elam. It was shown at Artspace.
