The exposure to preplanning, death and funereal for many people is still a tabu.
Though the debate about the own finiteness and the theme "Death" is very positive.
The death arrives impartial of age. Nearly always it comes at the wrong moment
is sensed by friends, relatives, business partners as shock. The death
after a long, heavy illness can be as well salvation. However during the terminal care
the relatives feel very often helpless and committed.
Derived from her own experience the artist Chris Bleicher knows, that dialogues
- as well in the context of preplanning - help, to get through and overcome these
hard times together
with the associated moribound person.
"In the past I thought, that I'll let dispose myself humble.
After intensive examination with the themes "Death" and "Funeral Culture"
now I want to give to my associated people and as well business partners
through the way of my funeral - what is already defined in form of a
a lasting memory of me. In combination with the exhibition
"Chris Bleicher - Brother Van Gogh"
1998 in the Forum der Technik (Forum of Technology), Deutsches Museum, Munich (Germany), with Coffin Performance
and Sunflower Happening I painted a coffin (which will now be my own one)
with sunflowers and discovered near by: It is important and positive, to concern
oneself with the
own decease! With the artistic creation of urns and coffins I want
to take away of death the
tremendousness and have contributed to handling of grief."
It is always sad, to loose a beloved person. You cannot speak with her,
to ask for an advice
or touch. For the dead earthly body
we do the
last services in commemoration of the decedent. With an artistic created
urn or a creative designed coffin - for example in the favorite color or a
special motif -
exists therefore the possibility, the funeral
the cremation arrange individual within the meaning of the dead
person and her memoriam beware in our heart.
