The first shutdown in the curse of the corona crisis came with
drastic consequences for our society. Our lives changed overnight. We
switched into a distance mode
and experienced, what it means to be cut of our social environment.
This was a burden in many ways, but at the same time this exeptional
challenge included also
opportunities. The quality of lonliness was made tangible. We had more
time for ourselfs, we established new forms of communication in order
to stay in touch with
others. During this shutdown I was on my own. I started to draw
portraits of people, that mean something in my life. It was a way to be
close to them, to touch them.
Parts of the drawed faces I erased again, just like a mental image that dissolves again after a while.
