Analia Adorni painting - diagnosis

The World is experiencing a moment of stand-still during the events of Covid-19 pandemic. Surely it is affecting each one of us in many different ways. To some this means fear and uncertainty about the future, economic difficulties, to others – inspiration and time to create. This period brings ideas into surface, raises questions and debates about our healthcare and economic systems, ecological, political and social issues.

This is a series of posts featuring creative expressions made during Covid-19 pandemic, or previous works that are particularly relevant during these times of change.

Analia Adorni is an Argentinian visual artist, based in Italy, whose works explore the interconnectedness, continues transformation and ambiguity of limits between nature and culture.

“My artworks reflect on the relationships in times of COVID19. In these days I am seeing the control in the daily lives of citizens and the necessity for vigilance. My intention is to reflect on this strong control in movement, life and relationships of people, penalisations for citizens in case of not acting according to the rules. Nations use words like war, victory, friends and unfriends: in consequence the phenomenon of social distancing and isolation appears. This situation transforms the life of population and contributes in creating paranoia; but at the same time it is a positive change, because this time is an opportunity to increase the solidarity and improve relationships.

In this period I am working with the impressions of Social Distancing and Isolation, to see the changes in thinking and relationships in the lifestyles of people in the town of Volterra (a town of 10.000 citizens in Central Italy, Tuscany) and my personal experiences in quarantine.

I think that after this adversity the world will be more solidary and more creative. The idea is that the emergency is already a step for a better world. The relationships will change and the society will enjoy simpler things.
After this adversity people will care more for nature. Nature will be
reconsidered and Global warming will be accepted; people will enjoy landscapes and natural spaces.”
