Memento Mori at Greenside

The theme of death is a rich and fascinating one and as artists we were inspired to create works on the subject. Perhaps partly because of the issues involved, this was the most awkward project to bring to fruition. It was originally going to be developed in the old graveyard at St Ninians but permission was withdrawn.

A subsequent version of the project at Greenside in Alloa went ahead in May-June 1996. Each of the five artists based works on personal, local and universal responses to the theme, which in many ways has become the taboo of the late 20th century.
