Aubade, 2020

The definition of aubade in the dictionary is a concert of voices or instruments given at sunrise in honor of someone, under their window or at their door; partially made up of air for this concert. 

In the Aubade series, I investigate the colors as voices or instruments. The plastic background creates a music sheet on top of which the colors dance and sing. Aubade is a song sung in the morning, according to the movement of the sun, the colors are projected on the walls, shadows behind the painting, creating a multifaceted piece in constant flux.

the aubade of the pandemic is the sound of the phone, that rings rings, and no one answers, it is the sound of missing someone, of the hope of connection, of human lacking. It exemplifies in an abstract form, this silent cacophony.
