Pertwee Anderson and Gold and The Museum of Curiosity are collaborating on a new exhibition. Memento Mori explores the most universal of subject matters: death, and brings together both historical and contemporary artworks which ask the viewer to contemplate their own mortality. ‘Memento Mori' translates as ‘Remember you die' and is said to originate in Ancient Rome where a general was parading through the city celebrating success in battle.
