The Disorder : Trade Off


The Disorder : Trade Off This series of prints narrates an encounter between two silhouetted figures, the princess (from Las Meninas) who holds a paintbrush from which paint drips and the figure who wears a plague doctor mask and wields a scythe. The gap between the pages progressively widens to introduce an increasing number of trade ships sailing on waves made of bandages – a reference to the spreading of the plague along trade-routes.
