The concept of hanging has been around for centuries. Each time a different experience. Compelling, disturbing and yet beautiful. With countless people being victim to this death penalty, each part of their pain is expressed through this piece.

Death is not justice

Our 2010 project asked for the universal abolition of the death penalty.
For us it’s simple. The death penalty is a violation of human rights. Article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” How does that fit with beheading, stoning, hanging, lethally injecting or shooting someone?
