My Corona Diary: amusing adaptations of classical portraits to our pandemic times by Sabine Pigalle

In her incredible series titled My Corona Diary, Paris-based French artist Sabine Pigalle plays with classical portraits painted by old masters, adapting them to our pandemic times with big doses of humor and wit.

In line with her visual vocabulary, the artist recycled the paintings of the old masters by placing them in our daily lives, putting them in touch with new habits and practices linked to Covid19. The burlesque, often ironic tone works like a catharsis aimed at combating with laughter the painful situation of anxiety and doubts about the future. (“Humor is the politeness of despair”). The earthiness of the comic style and black humor makes fun of the absurdity of the situations engendered by this crisis, and this language is basically a form of resistance to the climate of heavy uncertainty, in the face of a collective test involving, in addition, the question of public health, the economy, the social, mentalities.
