Don't Die Until Later


Don't Die Until Later recasts a series of Roman busts as characters in a Spaghetti Western. Videoed by Urbahn in the Louvre, Paris in 2009, each of the faces projects a determined sense of 'character'. The soundtrack is compiled from a number of musical sources (Bob Marley, The Osmonds and Ennio Morricone) and movie dialogue from Sergio Leone's "Dollar" trilogy. Urbahn previously used the soundtrack in an earlier work saLOON (1999), which featured cctv footage of the artist sitting in a bar in the James Smith market for 8 hours.
