Waiting (original Italian title: Attesa) is a double portrait inspired by the small gestures of everyday life with the elderly as the protagonists. In this work two old people, a man and a woman, are waiting in line for their turn to cash in their modest pension at the post office. In their eyes the tiredness and the resignation of a lifetime spent waiting for their turn.
Materials: mixed media (graphite, acrylic, monotype, watercolour, collage) on recycled paper and cardboard, printed cards of various kinds, old numbered postal tickets issued when waiting for one’s turn. Measurements: 56.5 x 46 cm.
