  • About the artwork

    A female figure is looking for an emergency exit in a simple and neat inhabited indoor. This is the main theme of Big Exit by Simona Rota, a photographic series where the artist uses this figure to reflect the connection of the current individual with our closest environment, our home. The relation between the size of the cities, becoming larger, and the measurements of our occupied units, apartments shrinking, is one of the main elements of this reflection. Simona finds a proporcional link among the growth of the cities and the low quota that 's designated to each inhabitant. This space is getting smaller and causes the search for an abrupt exit on the role of the protagonist of her Big Exit.

    Generally the inhabitant reaches a symbiosis or an adaptation to occupy the space, but this process is not lacking in pressure or frustation, as it can not be 100% acomplished. In this series, the artist presents an impracticable or impossible exit and she proves the friction between the natural behaviour of the individual and the internal partition of our room. Simona does not stop in her search within a neutral space of simply furniture that could be placed on the flat of any people we meet every day or even should be near to us.

    This space research leads her to treat the reduced surrounding of the apartment with landscape entity with a lighting that tranforms the scene and her main character in something unreal, but at the same time it is close to the everyday life of the viewer who is forced to rethink its connection with the environment and the changes of paradigm in habitable spaces.
