Cidade (from Héliographias) . León Ferrari . 1980

'From a far point of view, the large images look as chaotic patterns of walls, people, furnitures and cars. At a closer look it is possible to realize that the symbols stage paradoxical situations in which, i.e., people line up to enter empty spaces or are confined in a series of small cubicles. The paradoxes can be read as metaphors of contemporary cities where alienated individuals wander – without any apparent logic – through irrational urban patterns.The works turn the technical drawings into a narrative and symbolic device filled with sarcasm'
