Serie of 6, Bronze, 2020

Automa-CV19 is a small androgynous bronze bust, with a displaced face.
The concept repeats a mask, but this time the mask does not hide a house, it IS the face. It is confused what it is and what it hides.
the face appears to be ripped and removed from its place, but it is still anchored to the head. It is more of a forward projection, and this is indicated by the serene expression of this little character.
It could be a robot from an Asimov tale
Francesca Play with the finishes: the head has an industrial and old look, while the face is smooth and shiny, of an antique gold polish.
