About

The art of the human image arose millennia ago as a way to keep the dead among us. The pictorial object "the icon" often carried a charge as ritual or ceremonial artifact and as a thing with a certain power. Artist Heide Hatry has extended this tradition by creating realistic portraits made out of the actual ashes of the departed person, and she has created a collaborative artist's book: Icons in Ash which will be celebrated with a small exhibition, readings from the book and music and spoken word performances relating to death
