Faced with the panorama of global contingency, the artist and calligrapher Said Dokins collaborates with Gama Gallery and photographer Elisabeta Riccio, where they address the issue of the pandemic and the need for unity and help through art. The exhibition called 'Together isolation' includes collaborations with international artists from China, Italy, Mexico, United States, among others.
Ghosting Series. Hidden Words 01' is the first of a series of three Limited Edition Fine Art Prints. This new collection in collaboration between the artists Said Dokins and Ugly Food House Studio as conceptual art combines printmaking, and calligraphy, to go deeper on the notion of 'phantasmagoria' of the late eighteenth century, a series of optical illusions applied in theatres to create horror atmospheres.
Said Dokins, Cix and Spaik take us to a place far away from our daily sigh and time passing. It is a prison, that institution raised by the State as a place of exception, where social logics are interrupted, exacerbated, transformed; a punishment space that fulfils the double function of confining those who are inside, to isolation and punishment, and threatening those who are outside.
