Laid to Rest was a project by artist Serena Korda, commissioned by the Wellcome Trust as part of their 'DIRT' Season, produced in association with UP Projects.


The finale procession witnessed the procession and burial of 500 commemorative bricks containing people's dust. The procession of people followed a mythical marching band, dancers and heavy horses. They travelled from the Wellcome Collection to Brunswick Square Gardens, Bloomsbury, where a layer of bricks were ceremoniously buried. A bronze plaque commemorating the project can be seen in the gardens. 

Original score by Daniel O'Sullivan. Special thanks to Wellcome Trust, London Borough of Camden and The Friends of Brunswick Square Gardens.
