The artist portrayed herself locked up in a zoo enclosure. In the abyss, the painter is in the process of creating another of her works that symbolizes the contempt of Capitalism triumphant over the Living. All around the enclosure, many wild animals, habitual residents of the place, enjoy here an unexpected freedom.

The wildlife observes the great ape in his works as would any human visitor who is stunned by the agility of the monkeys in their antics. A new daydream inspired by the COVID-19 epidemic that has plunged the whole world into horror. A representation of the fragility of our individual existences, of our existence as a species, a fragility that we finally share with all our animal brothers...

A representation of confinement as an absolute need for protection in the face of the risk of extinction, a confinement constrained in the name of the protection of the species. In these troubled times, the painting is also a reflection on the future of artists, when some argue that only the preservation of "essential activities" counts. What would then be a society deprived of diversity in artistic creation, a society that would turn its artists into rare singularities, zoo "curiosities"...?

Victoria Stagni’s figurative painting, which was born in Buenos Aires to a Paraguayan father and an Argentinean mother, oscillates between realism and dreamlikeism. His imagination is inspired by the works of great Latin American writers such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Alejo Carpentier, where nature often plays a major role.

This "magical realism" inspires him to create figurative, colourful and luminous canvases in which characters are represented in a fantasized nature, surrounded by a whole friendly or threatening bestiary. The painter often places the human silhouette she masters best, her image, in order to play with our perceptions and develop a lush pictorial language. Animality is the centerpiece of a curiosity cabinet where the ancestral feelings of the psyche are expressed: fear, anger, laughter...
