Peggy Kliafa participates in the show with the artwork:
Viagra Portrait, 2013, 75,5×63,5cm. Acrylic colors on canvas, wooden frame, metallic label with carved out name
It belongs to a series of artworks entitled “Pills Portraits” with painted pills on canvas, with “baroque” wooden frames and small metallic labels with their “name” carved out, the way a portrait would exist on a museum’s wall. The idea is that medicines have a life cycle, they affect people’s lives, they have a “personality”. The idea is also that knowing what kind of medicines a person takes or does not take one can “draw his/her portrait”.
