A dashed red line leads our way through the representation of moments of sharing of the space both public and private, both real and ideological. The extracts of daily life chosen by the artist are studied precisely to make us face the familiar scenes and also to push us to reflect on a perspective often neglected or taken for granted, that of the sharing. From the elevator to the couch, from the traffic light to the water dispenser, from a bonfire to a soccer match, from a park bench to the cinema, from the mosque up to the entire globe. These simple illustrations remind us how each of our daily acts is an action with a social value indeed because the space we live in is social: a space that could be real or imaginary, but that is always a common space.
