Art in Quarantine — Pedro Sequeira
UMBIGO invited several artists to reflect on the era we are living in and to think about their artistic production in quarantine times.
Project by the artist Pedro Sequeira.

The hashtag #stayhome had by the time I made this piece 29.3 million posts in Instagram. Following the invitation by Umbigo Magazine to produce a new piece during the confinment period caused by the outbreak of coronavirus I propose a translation and interpretation of the word EXIT.
By proposing different languages (some of which used in the same country) and contexts, language used by specific groups I am simoultaneously suggesting and provoking the viewer.
