Elisa Abela, 23 Drawings For Adults Only

How are babies born? How are the drawings born? How do bodies reproduce graphically, and how do humans and other animals mate? Elisa Abela plays by superimposing the questions of life and art, combining great existential questions and occasional riddles, but also declining the contents that adults reserve for themselves with childish language.

23 Drawings For Adults Only is a catalog of snapshots, scribbles in pencil or with wax colors, imprinted on paper without a pre-established project: 23 sheets born loose and then collected in a notebook with the spiral binding: an album of innocent thoughts, dirty visions, about the way we are made.

Elisa Abela (Catania, 1980) lives and works in Rome, where she combines her visual research with musical activity. His first solo exhibition was in 2010 in Rome, at s.t. photo library gallery, where he also exhibited in 2012 and 2019.
