Artes Moriendi was an installation about death, the formal language of death as it is socially constructed and displayed in the sculpture and architecture of sepulchre, mausoleum and memorial.

The installation featured three discrete sculptures displayed within the conventions of art history and the traditional sculpture garden. However, by imagination and in proximity to St. James' Cathedral, the site has a double reading: the garden as a graveyard.
