I have visited my ‘fair share’ of mausolea. More often than not I have found these ‘resting places’ to have become neglected, vandalised and desecrated. A place where the very idea of personhood has disappeared.
Mauosolea, as places, do not seem real to me. They can be beautiful but their intended permanence is a construct and no more.
In the CANMORE archive I came across a series of beautiful architectural sketches for the Forglen Mausoleum. These images inspired the following short film. On the same day as discovering these beautiful sketches, ‘Release Radar’ [SPOTIFY] shared ‘Skinny Ape’ by Gorillaz.
I would like to dedicate this film to Richard Holloway for his faith in my creativity:
as dust scattered from mountain tops.
