Karlien De Villiers, with her bizarre characters who seem to come from the world of comics, pushes us to reflect on problems that are always present in our society with a sharp irony.
In this triptych, the artist shows us an accumulation of characters and objects which, as is clear from the title, are closely related to the "new world" that we found ourselves living during and after the pandemic.
To all this, as often happens in his works, is added a reference to sharp objects and disturbing, violent scenarios.
