French & Mottershead


UK-based artists Rebecca French and Andrew Mottershead present Afterlife Woodland at Hitparaden 2. Afterlife was one of a developing series of works reflecting on the death of the body and its relationship to place and time. The work is an audio narrative that invites listeners on a poetic journey beyond their own death, and through the natural processes of decomposition in a woodland setting, compressing decades into minutes.

Scientific Adviser: Dr. Carolyn Rando, Forensic Anthropologist, University College London.
Voice: Tanya Myers
Development of this work is supported by Cifas, Brussels.

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
