Piece created for ANTIVIRUS, Tincal lab Quarantine Challenge
Materials cotton thread, textile hardener
Times changed. Things stopped to be as they used to be. Someone pressed a huge RESET button and an entire world is now recovering. Maybe not only from medical issues but also from being too busy, superficial and insensitive. Forgotten roots are brought back from oblivion and we all seem to remember to enjoy life. We now beautifully rise again, hopefullyin better versions.
The choice of the shapes (suggesting rosebuds) was not accidental. The reason of it was the fact that the word ROSE has two meanings: rose – the flower and rose – the simple past of the verb RISE.
The choice of the materials was also a conscious one. Duringa month and a half of the declared national state of emergency, in a place far from home, without materials, tools, studio, these are exactly the materials I experimented with.
