Hur learned a traditional way of jesah - a ritual of mourning the dead, and re-enacted and performed as a mourner of her losses for 7 days. Meanwhile, the artist sung hymnals, mourned, and invited her cellist and artist friend Katie Waugh to play a requiem for one hour each day as a companion. After 7 days, she shared a rice soup meal with invited guests.
