NOT DEAD YET

Exhibition

Female collective XSexcentenary present a celebration of life and a commemoration of women at their One Stop Memorial Shop.

The ‘shop’ is a collective environment for XSexcentenary and the public to share their experiences of loss and mourning through the creation of an evolving shrine to the dead, comprised of donated books, texts, images, objects and artworks. A series of collaborative events and workshops with guest artists provide an opportunity to embrace remembrance and our own mortality.

XSexcentenary will perform a series of actions at the Necropolis informed by experiences shared at the One Stop Memorial Shop.

XSexcentenary are Kate Clayton, Wanda Zyborska, Katherine Araniello and Norma D Hunter. NOT DEAD YET is co-curated by Kate Clayton and Holly Knox Yeoman.

Supported by Glasgow International. The project is in partnership with the Scottish Poetry Library.
