Dance macabre

100 x 25 cm

Not For Sale

An artwork extended experience inspired by the iconographic theme of the late medieval Macabre Dance, namely a dance between living beings and skeletons. The iconographic subject, with the traditional function of memento mori, expresses an individualistic vision of death, but at the same time denotes a grotesque image of life and its often useless worries.The recent pandemic, due to Covid-19, has reminded humanity that the balance of life on the planet is rather fragile and delicate. Human beings represent a system and, just like in the iconography of the macabre dance, social hierarchies are not important if compared to the plague or the world pandemic.
