The Dance of the four Veils

Marina RICCI

Don’t you think that our contemporary urban spaces have been greatly disrupted by the COVID-19 health crisis? Everyday environments turned into a ghost town, where present life seemed to have disappeared overnight. These many lockdowns have shown us how that present moment, the one we love, can be lost and forever erased. An evolutionary set design is the attachment to traces that resemble us, we contemporary people, like a stamp. Lightly, strips of paper then come to dress up the facade of Sergeant Blandan alley. Indeed, just like an onion skin that we would come to peel off, other universes specific of our former life, and too quickly forgotten, are revealed. Finally, these spaces come alive again, at the residents’pace.
