The monitor faded, the lines cut loose. Grey first, then white.’
On the morning of New Year’s Eve 2008 two young people met with an accident. The next week, they were buried. Since then, they have been missed. In both images and words, Intensive Care shows the inconceivable and unexpected aspects surrounding a sudden death. Photographer Andrea Stultiens recorded the hospital, funeral home and the burials. Poet Vrouwkje Tuinman writes about mourning and remembrance. The images and texts share their unsentimental, day-to-day view of death and everything it brings about.
