Procession is a film on The White Shroud. On June 8th, The White Shroud was carried by the Guild of Red Cross Volunteers and Members of Martial Arts Clubs during the opening procession of the exhibition Sonsbeek 2008: Grandeur in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
The White Shroud is made of used, white clothes, mostly baby’s and children’s shirts and blouses. The clothes are sewn together – with the neck openings in one direction – and form a shroud, 3 x 8 meters in size.

The installation shows the film Procession on a small screen together with the sculpture itself.
