“Lockdown” comes to life during the pandemic when I realized that a new abnormality, made of geometric distances and automatic gestures was taking up residence in everyone’s lives. The work shows a surreal landscape, a city crystallized in isolation and stasis.
I used scrap materials, the insides of cardboard boxes, and worn-out ropes, which lend themselves to sharpen the sense of a general boxing-up, and physical and emotional binding of people. The color white spread all over intensifies the sense of immobility and mourning.
The presence of a square of nature, at the center of the work, creates a contrast with the image of a phantom city and the flowers become elements used for their symbolic and commemorative value.
