In the most recent drawings the artists show themes related to a pandemic. Hygiene and anti-epidemiological measures by individuals or society and the vision of post-pandemic life. They imagine folklore of the future. Designing new folk costume and speculative ethnography. Carousel and autodrome for single person. Social distancing. Modern hermitism and isolation for self-improvement. Society pressure to continually acquire new knowledge and skills even during a pandemic. Exercise at home and home workout. Loneliness as the new normal inspired by Japanese phenomenon of hikikomori, people living for years without social contact.
