Collateral events, 2010/2012
Installation, 160 mixed media on paper
every year is stupid. It is a time past when they become interesting” Cesare Pavese
During the research and development of this project I spent a year collecting texts and photographs of protests that were happening daily around the world, in a period ranging from october 2010 to coincide with the strikes that paralyzed France until 15 october 2011 with the “occupy” movement. A database of over 3000 images collected using social networks. Of this collection 160 became drawings.
 The time spent drawing allowed me to reflect upon events that I depicted, remembering them and thinking of them as history. Although each person depicted in this series, offers an individual response to the situation he or she was in, the sum of the representations might set a connection between the events of the past and their future.
