During the confinement in 2020, as we could not leave our houses, I asked the people who followed me in networks, to look in their houses for objects / souvenirs, to send me the photos of those objects and to tell me the stories behind them. These are some of the stories they told me.
Works made by mixed technique on 370 grm basik paper.
“Check or drop. Letters from Thailand” it is a series of drawings created from a trip I took to Thailand in August 2017. During the trip, I kept sending letters to myself telling little daily anecdotes, of those that we usually forget soon after returning from a trip. Usually when some time passes after a trip, we only remember a few anecdotes from our trip, forgetting little circumstances that make our trips more interesting and authentic. In order to memorize them and be inspired by them, I sent myself letters with these little stories together with papers I was collecting (tickets, tickets, subway tickets…) that I would later use as the basis of the drawing together with the envelope that contained them.
