Size 26 x 21 cm
2017"Monile" (pendant) by Andrea Buglisi presents a clear contrast between the elements that compose it: on one hand a very old picture - probably found in some street market - that portrays an old lady. On the other hand, a "pendant", an ornament carefully composed that stands out on the woman's chest, made of pills and psychiatric drugs.
An association that immediately leaves the observer shaken, pray of confusing feelings, only to later make room for a deep reflection on the many meanings and interpretations such an artwork can hide.
