Memento Mori?

Memento Mori? (misprinted as Momento Mori? on the poster) opened at Bangkok's Jam Cafe on 25th September and runs until 23rd October. The exhibition consists of images of dead animals (mostly small birds and reptiles), photographed by Dhanainun Dhanarachwattana, and each photograph is displayed behind a black wooden shutter.

Approaching each of the twenty-six boxes creates a sense of both anticipation and trepidation: what unfortunate creature will be behind the next door? The coffin-like boxes, dead flowers, and velvet drapes blocking out any daylight create an appropriately funereal atmosphere.
