Artist statement


Because of the COVID-19 crisis, our bodies have been forced into distance or closeness, but our souls are the real prisoners of the body; they are lost between bodies that cannot meet their daily needs. The aim of this piece is to document the moment when a person is staring at a convex mirror that reflects their body and surroundings. The question is, which soul is the closest to them?
