Quarantine Diaries

Curated by: Jorge Sanguino

The sculpture consists of an old wooden chair delicately holding a row of soaps against the wall. The soaps are the product of collecting them during the COVID-19 pandemic between 2020 and 2021. The project, which initially involved collecting the soaps as a record of the time passing during the period of social isolation, and which before vaccines and masks was synonymous with fragile security, represents the waiting in isolation, the deaths of many people who were not aided for fear of infection, and today's population distrust of the politically managed health emergency. All of this is reflected in the fragile stability of the chair, which also rests on an extra bar of soap.
