I made this for the exhibition And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers curated by Miguel Lopez for Kunsthalle Wien. Miguel asked me to produce a work on how the pandemic has affected racialized bodies in the intersections of the body, ecology, economy and collective care. You can view the work in the public spaces of Vienna as it was printed as billboards!
the work is about the sensations of belonging and displacement in a moment of an unknown future.
About the interruption of everyday life
it is about the forced physical distancing, the disruption of touch and how it changes interpersonal relations
i wanted to adress the effects the pandemic has had on my emotions, feelings and behavior
The image is about leaving a place where I have lived for a long time, not knowing what the new will be. It is about confronting these changes on my own. Even if there are temporary remedies of connecting with others, I feel that the challenge of enduring the current social transition is an individual one. The image tells about the difficulties of staying passive in these moments of disruption, because in the case of Corona there really is nothing I can do.
