“Only that which is always with you can be said to be your self and if you look closely and simply at experience, only awareness is always ‘with you’.”

― Rupert Spira, Presence: The Art of Peace and Happiness

Jackie Brookner

On May 15, 2015 Jackie Brookner passed away after a year and a half battle with cancer.

Her last site-specific installation was her own body. Wrapped only in a cotton shroud and placed on a rustic wooden plank she was lowered directly into the earth she loved so much. She lays to rest in a natural burial field in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in New York.
