Artist Michael Wolfe and writer Kirsten Krauth look through the gothic glass at the edges of these uncertain times in photographs, verse, text and lyrics by Nick Cave. Exploring the rituals of remembrance as expressed in memorial statuary and reflections on loss, sorrow, absence, melancholy and letting go. They ask the questions: how do we appeal to the better angels of our nature and where are they just when we need them the most?
