Our current situation is one that is heavy and metaphorically oxymoronic. It influences everything and has rendered a moment of silence seem almost peculiar. The choice of the works has been strongly dictated by the current status quo and the state of our souls. The selected art works all circle around the theme of silence. Although common opinion continues to prejudicially interpret it as a condition of passivity, it can be argued that silence is usually one of the undisputed protagonists of the vital moments in the life of every human being. Furthermore, it is a fundamental element for the purpose of artistic creation. To say it with Giacomo Leopardi’s words: “It is the language of all the strong passions, of love, of anger, of wonder, of fear”. How is this deafening silence experienced and interpreted in this precise moment in time?
