Taryn Simon: An Occupation of Loss

In her monograph, An Occupation of Loss, artist Taryn Simon creates a detailed record of her years researching professional mourning, which culminated in a seminole performance at the Park Avenue Armory in 2016. During the installation, professional mourners from around the world simultaneously broadcast their lamentations within a monumental sculptural setting, enacting rituals of grief. The installations combined performance, sound, and architecture to consider the anatomy of grief and the intricate systems we use to manage fate and uncertainty.
