Suddenly, one day, we found out Covid-19 had arrived to change our lives.
Very soon, most cities were empty and silent.
Many were fortunate enough to be home when the pandemic hit.
Others were not and got stranded far away. Some people had to stay on the streets, because they had nowhere else to go.
Many got infected and died; there was applause and “cacerolazos”; demonstrations for and against.
Loneliness took hold and each of us reacted the best we could.
Luckily, art exists!
The artist created works based on their experiences, which resonate with our own.
Some have a tragicomic, ironic approach, while others resorted to taking refuge in their own fantasies.
Many came out to witness what was going on to better understand and process what was happening to us: waiting, life on hold.
All of them show an aspect of what affected us, as we
Accept the uncertainty of its demise.
Elda Harrington y Silvia Mangialardi
"I never imagined the Apocalypse so silent as to hear in Piccadilly the song of a blackbird"
Atmosphere of a scared, desperate city with barely a glimpse of hope and solidarity.
The sounds of parks and the bells stopped.
On how borders were closed again.
The revenge of small merchant
Even the small towns suffered the pandemic
At the agreed time and place
As living masterworks, the divine comedies of domesticity
Like in a fairytale.
Portraying mood change
An exploration on the yearning a love separation provokes
From photojournalism to photographing his private world
Portraying his kids he recalls his own childhood
Days happen, alike but different, filled of creative, idled, bored hours.
While you are locked inside with memories…
When your bed is the whole world
This video is a telephone recording of a conversation with Natalia
The effects of the pandemic in raising extreme poverty
Coexisting with the virus in a new normality.
The colors in the monitor of a thermographic camera determine who is a potential carrier
Irony as a way of protection
With humor she builds feminine social archetypes using self-portraits
Imagining possible lives.
"The key word is expression, not photography, not painting, not writing When you look at my photographs you look into my thoughts"
