Lot Notes

In her series "Faces without a Face", "Net People", "Shadows of the Present", "Time Regained", "Serenity" and "Facebook Obsession", the artist Florica Prevenda brings into public attention the issue of the individual identity in the contemporary world: globalization, standardization, virtual space and the expansion of virtual communication to the detriment of face to face interaction.
