The Death Bear

The Death Bear has been receiving a lot of attention. He is Nate Hill, a New York based performance artist, who will come and cart away the remnants of lost loved ones or lost loves. For no cost, he will answer your call or text, and take away letters, dog tags, mementos, and even underwear. He takes all the “stuff” to a cave in Central Park where the items become reabsorbed and the haunting that they trigger finally has the potential to fade away. Does it work? Maybe or maybe not. But what all of this points a finger towards is the desperate need to have rituals around endings, and symbolic acts of letting go. Letting go is never easy. Particularly in this country, we aren’t taught how to grieve and we certainly aren’t given permission to do so. The Death Bear is taking this matter into his own hands. Thank you, Nate.
