Hiding from the virus 

We’re afraid of the virus because we’re afraid to die. But if you pretend to be someone else or hide, then perhaps death will not find you. Isn’t that why we isolate ourselves and wear masks? It’s not me — pass by! I’m not scared! Boo!

I wanted to turn everything upside down and destroy fear with laughter. This laughter has carnival roots. It is based on the discrepancy between external and internal. I am a trickster — just a fool and a cheat. But I bring renewal. Ha!

This carnival on two square meters is my only possible response to the pandemic. How to answer chaos? Only with laughter. It liberates and seeks to create a new world order. I just want to swap life and death. Such a little!
