Prescriptives norms, solitude, imprisonment, escape. From the streets of brutalist cities, whose architecture reflects the political climate that animates them, until the liberating escape. The debut comics of Percy Bertolini and Émilie Gleason tell stories about characters marked by difference, who are unable to – and don’t want to – conform to the world in which they live. A comparison between two different ways of drawing the body, through the comics, to find a space of freedom in a suffocating reality.
In collaboration with Diabolo Edizioni, Canicola, Festival La Violenza Illustrata.
