Collaboration: "Between You and Me: On Love, Ethics, and Poetics"

Series of paintings I made for a publication.

The publication gathers an essay (under the same title) by Eugenia Lapteva.

“Between You and Me: On Love, Ethics, and Poetics” is a publication designed and conceptualized by Folch Studio for an initiative by Arjowiggins Creative Papers, in the framework of the lecture “Redesigning Luxury”, on the occasion of the ADC*E – 1st European Creativity Festival.

I was asked by Folch Studio to work on a series of paintings to be included in the publication and related to Eugenia Lapteva’s essay about the ethics of love.

Note from the editors about the publication:
“For a long time, the way we understand luxury has been closely entwined with historical notions of exoticism, wealth, excess, and ultimately unattainability. We have perceived it as that “greener grass at the other side of the fence” that creates a psychological distance between us and the other. In spite of this, the scarcity of natural resources and our increasingly virtualised lives inevitably drive us to a different reality: one where luxury is no longer a matter of wealth, but of attitude. (…)”
