Sculpture, Installation, Design
Gallery 1

Luxury of Choice. Objects of Self-Deliverance is a collection of 17 objects for a voluntary death. Methodically crafted. Completely real. Designed by Sruli Recht. An exhibition produced in collaboration with Hazard Gallery.
Sruli Recht’s personal experience of living with chronic illness is very much at the core of the project. Equally essential to the project was Recht’s research into euthanasia – the act of deliberately ending a person’s life to relieve pain and sufering. His research revealed the cases when the process went disastrously wrong, “with inefective objects and tragic failures,” and brought up the question about the ritual for the transition.
