Christiane Falck is currently working on an exhibition about people’s relations with spirits in a Sepik community in Papua New Guinea. Part of the exhibition will be audio-visual material as well as artefacts collected during her PhD fieldwork. Since spirits inhabit an unseen sphere, Christiane is currently experimenting with ways in which audio-visual material can be used to capture the immaterial and can be presented in a way that will help the visitor of the exhibition understand people's lifeworld. The exhibition will further address topics such as 'rituals of life and death', 'people's relations with the dead', and explore how she herself came to be seen as a spirit of the dead.
