RESPICE POST TE. HOMINEM TE MEMENT
Combining the natural urban set design – abandoned and crumpling dwellings in Old Riga – with the ancient Roman saying ‘Respice post te, hominem te memento’ (“Look around you. Remember you’re [only] a man”), the artists interpret the classical memento mori theme, reminding us of the impermanent nature of everything living and the eternal presence of death.
