“ 13/04/2022, 21:00 - 14/04/2022, 9:58: Solo Violin”

Variable Size
Steel, MDF, ceramic


The work is a memory of a violinist who committed suicide during the pandemic lockdown. The relationship between official history and individual memory is explored in this work through the contrast of large and regular steel and small ceramic clues. The steel surface is punched with random holes and knocked to create a texture that resembles goose bumps, suggesting a potential for restlessness and collapse. In its precarious position, the dialogue between the ceramic violin head and the pancreas seems to speak of a vulnerability that has nothing to do with individual identity under the collective trauma.
