I would like to be white, like you..., 2016


Painting on a wall (cocoa, coffee) and performative action

The artist about the artwork:
This work illustrates the memory of when my daughter scrubbed with gravel her legs, asking "Am I white?". White wall was painted with brown color, then with sandpaper I bring back the white color. Swiping sound allow to make feelings and give time to think about the assessments, careless words, rejection of other.
