Tag: La Petite Morte

Originally from Romania, Saddo and Aitch recently relocated to Lisbon where they found themselves caught off guard by the gloomy, damp winter. They describe the cold weather as an oppressive force that kept them indoors, affecting them both physically and psychologically. Their upcoming two-person show at La Petite Mort Gallery in Ottawa, "Coffins" (could there be a gallery name and show title combination more appropriate?), reflects on their rough experience and celebrates the warmth of summer. The two artists, who are frequent collaborators as well as a romantic couple, say that they chose the title because it reflects their state of mind while they were trapped indoors in their damp apartment. Take a look at their morbidly humorous paintings after the jump.
