Ritual for Reconnection
Edition No. 7
Fair market value: $150
Imagining a time when it was safe for us to come together again, Ferrandi wanted to outline a ritual for reconnecting with each other that acknowledged what we've lost during the pandemic and (hopefully) what we've gained. Originally drawn for Desert Island Comics' Rescue Party Project on Instagram. This is a digital (Giclee) print on archival paper, signed and numbered.
George Ferrandi is an American artist primarily known for her performance, installation and participatory projects that address issues of vulnerability, impermanence, fallibility and spectacle, often through experimental approaches to narrative.
