We’re the first generation lacking solitude but doing solitary tasks on screens. We’re always mediating between loneliness and the urge for solitude. Martynas Pavilonis from Lithuania articulates the delight of solitude in the sweetest way possible! Let them say what they will about “leaving the comfort zone”, sometimes we just want to recharge in a familiar place. Artworks on solitude reminds us to invest time in ourselves and to ask “How am I doing?” once in a while. When the world becomes a hard place to blend in, you’ll find an artist that shares your secret from afar.
“I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other.” — Rainer Maria Rilke
