Unspeakable views of shadows; breathing like unknown and unfamiliar faces, in a reconciliatory and meditative encounter between the present and the continual unfolding of our existence.

One of the less documented works of the artist Pio Diaz (Copenhagen 1999), and the result of a night of inspiration and trust games. Ashes grew in significance to the artist once he linked the presence of the shadows and the auto reflection on them as a peaceful contemplation and casual and healthy dialogue between death and the natural human life expectations.

Several conversations with random elders and the deep interest in carbon made lifeforms and the origin of life. Shaped ones of the most hypnotic of his works.

“Ashes to ashes, funk to funky, We know Major Tom’s a junkie, Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low”
– David Bowie
