A public artwork about birth, death and the journey in between, created by artist duo YARA + DAVINA.
Taking the recognisable form of an arrivals and departures board, the artwork displays names of people submitted by the public as a way of celebrating and commemorating a birth (an arrival) or a death (a departure).
Located in the heart of Brighton, visitors and passersby can choose to contribute names via a live interaction with a guide or through arrivalsanddepartures.net.
These nostalgic display boards capture the joy and sadness of any arrivals hall or departure lounge. Integral to the work is an accompanying programme of events, talks and workshops which invites the public to engage more deeply with the themes including Death Café, guided meditation sessions and workshops around preparing for the end.
