During Covid 19 lockdown in 2020 I found an online PDF collection of the historical magazine “Document”, where a bunch of drawings by Picasso have been published between 1929 and 1930. Picasso’s work was introduced by Georges Bataille (founder of the journal) .I found those artworks impressively appropriated to the feeling of those days because the space in that Picasso’s period looks like it was disappeared. Moreover, the low digital resolution of these pages displayed on the screen generates an extremely strange effect on the images, a kind of a translucent fabric-texture. After started re-drawing the Picasso’s artworks on fabric I decided to realize an entire series of embroidered drawings that faithfully reproduce these works. The ten textile collages are framed in five bifacial frame. One one hand they are two-dimensional, on the other one the subjects are strongly dynamically connected with our gaze .
