Anne WolfersCarpe diem
At the time of the Covid-19 and the confinement, my drawings are inspired by the masks that the doctors of the XVIIth century wore to treat the plague victims. At the time, these masks were filled with theriac, a famous counterpoison inherited from ancient Rome, and today they are found emptied of their contents at the Venice carnival.
Presentation of the book in the presence of the author in conversation with Daniel Vander Gucht, publisher, at 5pm.
