NOTHING

AQUATINT

2013

 

The series is a personal reflection on the feeling of emptiness and consists of a self portrait that has written on the background a list of negations (nothing, non, nowhere, nobody, never, no etc) and on the other version a personal text representing a conjugation of mental states.

I am nothing.

You are invisible.

He/she is in the darkness.

We are loved.

You are forgotten.

They are somewhere,

nobody knows where.

 

The work reflected my personal state of mind at that moment and my other projects done during that period echoed an interest for the theme of death and desolation.
