Drowning in Flowers

  • by

Alba Fabre, Beirut (Lebanon).

It represents a woman drowning in flowers, an allegory to describe a moment of violence.
Lebanon is suffering very difficult circumstances caused by the current system.
Alba’s humble way of trying to contribute someway in that situation was to represent a feeling with which she empathizes, even if it’s a different cultural, political, and social context for the artist.
The woman looks directly at the viewer with violence and not by choice, but precisely because she survives even though she is drowned alive.
