‘Memento Object’ is a goodbye performance/ritual, performed on the last day of the exhibited, spacial work: ‘Object Mori’.

During the performance, all the objects placed by the audience in the days prior, are being packed up again. Candles are being lit in remembrance of the objects gone. The change of lights, highlights the embroidered names in the cloth evenmore.

The performance lasted 1,5 hours and, the audience was encouraged to walk in and out of the installation. During ‘Memento Object’, Madelief played vinyl records of her late mother.
