LAURINA PAPERINA AT HOME
Rovereto, April 16th 2020
At the beginning I’ve heard people say “This period must be full of stimuli and inspiration for you, artists”. It wasn’t like that for me… at least for the first few weeks. For the first time I felt stuck, helpless. My daily life has changed: isolation from people, the impossibility of going to work in my studio, my exhibitions canceled or postponed to a date to be defined. Going out with the dog or digital drinks with friends have become the only exciting events of the day. Suddenly, however, a few days ago I got a spark, the desire to create returned, I felt like myself after a long time. So, taking advantage of the beautiful days, the balcony of my apartment became my office, I started listing mini-projects that could be carried out in just one square meter on a small Moleskine. I went back to one of my first loves, video animation, and I started drawing survival pills entitled Stay at home and…, to be published on my social networks.
