Corona Portraits is a series of drawings portraying people around the globe during the pandemic, giving visibility to their experience through the sharing of their portrait and a short text written by them.
The project is born from a desire to capture the unique beauty and despair of this time. Its home is the virtual platform @corona.portraits on Instagram, which we use as a communal space & gallery where our stories and portraits have a place to overlap and cohabitate.
The intention of the project is to show diversity and commonality of what we are living as a way to facilitate connection and diminish isolation. In a time of social distancing, we benefit from spaces designed for healthy connectivity.
We also want to stimulate creativity by exposing adaptive skills in action. People are doing all sort of crazy things to stay shaped, sane, connected. We can inspire each other. And hopefully sharing the load of misery and transformation this is bringing, we will make the weight lighter and transmute it with company and humour.
This project is collaborative in nature. The drawings are based on pictures submitted by co-creators and they are published with a short text where people have a chance to express personal challenges and the strategies to alleviate them.
