mummification of destruction?

Lumir is a Czech-born, Canadian artist. In the 1970's he was active in the minimal and conceptual art movement and contributed significantly to the evolution of East European conceptual art. In 1981, Lumir immigrated to Canada and his art entered a new phase. His deeply rooted admiration of medieval and baroque art and conceptualism blended with his love of the Canadian wilderness. He developed  new, unprecedented art styles - FERAL BAROQUE and TRIBAL GOTHIC. His feral, "symbiotic" baroque is a collaborative work, involving non-human living organisms in the creative process such as wild black bears, martens, crows and insects. His TRIBAL GOTHIC art consists of mixed media work and installations that includes vintage ready-mades, entropical drawings and intervention objects ans images. His main inspiration - current widespread habit of human rational justification of outright human irrational behaviour. ”Lumir claims that "our disrespect of death is killing life".
