2014 Manning Clark House Day of Ideas: Memento Mori

Often translated from Latin as ‘remember you must die’ or ‘remember your mortality’, memento mori serves as a symbolic representation of the inevitability of death.

The 2014 Day of Ideas will provide talks and discussion on the ephemeral nature of life.

In the midst of life we are in death

Memento Mori are artworks that prompt us to ponder the emptiness and transience of earthly pleasures and re-assess our moral progress as we move toward the certainty of death.

Exhibition opening: Friday 17 October 6pm at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.
