Pneuma Lamentare is a performative approach of
the biography of Andreea Vladut’s grandmother (Evoneta Babarelu) as a professional mourner and the role of women as moirologists in different social and political contexts through history.
The work unveils the patriarchal social codes of mourning and proposes an empowering feminist appropriation of the mourning ritual.
Mourning is deeply rooted in the funeral ritual and it
follows certain rules, but at its core it is a
spontaneous expression of pain.
