The skull – as a residual being – is a form of protest against decay and nothingness of a once living body. Therefore we can assume that this remainder of a person's biological existence, even though irrevocably dead, persists on the side of life. Hence it is – following the title of Huculak's exhibition – an after-death symptom. Indeed, but let us face it: it is the last symptom. The last form of man. In the end there is complete decay, dust and nothingness. In the end there is Nothing.
