Ink on canvas sewn into 3
pairs of cotton underwear
Inspired by the very long labels found in mass-produced underwear, "Thirst" is a visible and invisible work. These labels lack the essential information for the consumer; what is the cotton treated with, that then the most intimate parts of us absorb? How much water does this cotton absorb, to grow, to give these underwear to us?
Underwear, their shape, mass produced, is a shape that has roots in ancient Rome, but its color, new white cotton, has its own blue tone, which contrasts with that of the yellowish, gessoed linen. The shape and color exchange language between ancient references and traditions brought to the present day, through the underpants that gradually get bigger, with their labels that keep growing, together with cotton in its various seasons.
