“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” (Elie Wiesel)

 

The world is full of events that bring wonder to all of us. As human beings, sometimes we can do nothing except being witnesses to these occurrences. Considering fundamental social issues such as democracy, human rights, equality, capitalism, migration and the plurality of the society we live in, are central to this work.

 

“Witnesses” touch us at the very core, reminding us of our shared humanity like justice, honesty, forgiveness, and decency. “Witnesses” are inspired by the twelve statues known collectively as the “Tell Asmar Hoard” that are famous for having wide eyes, and their sense of humble attentiveness are appealing.

 

The clean simplicity of these figures offers a vast space in which to push our mind. We can see a deep innocence, and compassionate gaze in their eyes that never force us to venture too deeply but, rather, leaves it entirely up to us as to how far in us might like to travel.
