Freezer Box (Vanitas) and Refrigerator (Vanitas)

Freezer Box (Vanitas) and Refrigerator (Vanitas) are from a series that considers vanitas in a modern-day circumstance, which really came to light when the pandemic hit in March 2020. The works reflect on the mass panic induced by the Covid-19 and how the idea of “stocking up” was so crucial and almost primal, in a notion to survive. In the traditional sense, vanitas allude to themes of plague, desperation, dehumanisation and loss.
