Professor Tony Walter, University of Bath. Dept of Social and Policy Studies.
Facing Death, Facing Loss. Vernacular symbols of loss in a post-Protestant society.
Protestantism has profoundly shaped western European cultures of mourning. Banned from caring for their dead, Protestants could (officially) only remember the dead. In reaction, grief’s emotions came to be creatively expressed in vernacular symbols: nature, the romantic, the gothic, candles, music and angels.

Joe Macleod. Closure Experiences
We are now encouraged to drunkenly stumble from purchase to purchase, with any sense of longevity and responsibility removed. Long term side effects of this are exampled in the Product, Service and Digital landscapes that we frequent. The consequences of our behaviour results in a changing climate, industries fined billions for mis-selling and individuals casually eroding their personal online reputations.

Lucy Willow & Mercedes Kemp.
Senior Lecturers in BA(Hons) Fine Art.
The Falmouth School of Art. Café Morte.
Lost for Words is a culmination of the work of Café Morte to engage in and encourage discussion around the subject of death with a wider community of artists, curators and healthcare professionals.
