Laura Jost, The Quarantine Diary, 2020

Laura Jost is an artist based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. These collages are from a time when the restrictions of quarantine meant that 'the house turned into the world' and the artist began to see the spaces and furniture around her in a new way.

Scale and perspective become distorted as elements speak of their own two-dimensional materiality whilst simultaneously becoming a symbol of texture and surface, much as our lives become flattened as we experience life through a screen.
