I, with three other people, lift the funeral pyre, having thousands of corpses (chopped roses) on it, in a ritualistic manner and take it from the premises to the RSAFAC Gallery where my performance video, Dead Bodies of the Youth is on display. The audience joins the procession with complete silence. We keep the pyre down on the floor in front of the video projection in the gallery. We bow with respect and pay tribute to the dead bodies.
