Self, The Other Self & Others
09 Mar 2018 – 19 Apr 2018
Paradise Road Galleries
The exhibition tells about otherness and contrasts.
In this series the drawings refer to the other self, the double, and the alter ego. It is about the shadow of the body, sometimes multiple, which one day envelopes us and reassures us, whereas the day after questions deeply about our identities.
It is also about others, the non-self, sometimes so difficult to understand, yet so similar, so precious. My work questions the difficulty as well as the need to interact with others. It draws encounters, tenderness, struggles, individuals banding together into madness, but also into protective and benevolent gatherings.
