SHROUD

 

A shroud is a last embrace.

In Belgium, it's possible to be buried or cremated

in a shroud.

The use of a shroud is an age-old custom.

Covered in soft fabric instead of a coffin,

the body is given back to nature.

 

Everyone dies.

However, in our culture death is often tucked away.

A shroud is a natural way of saying goodbye,

without hiding.

You cover your loved one, one last time.

A close connection.

Space is given to intimacy and affection.

It reduces the distance between then and now, the here and there.

The closing of the shroud is a ritual for saying goodbye.

This last embrace is personal and creates commitment. 

 

One by one you button your part.

This gives time to reflect on the unpronounceable together.

A hard time becomes more light.
