Ishu Patel
After life has ended, humans enter the sphere of eternity – memories mingle with the unpredictable. Other people, animals and mythical creatures appear and merge into a unified whole. Ishu Patel depicts the metamorphoses of this transcendental space in brilliantly shimmering clay images, endowing the afterlife with a beauty of its own.

What first feels like a single massive rush of images quickly turns into a complex, unique and personal journey. In “memento mori” more than 100,000 photos shot and collected during a lifetime become a compressed source of memories, a look back and thus a meditation on life and death.
