What comes first is time.
The work represents what comes first to me—Time. The concept is to concretize the life journey.
To embark on this journey you need a passport.
With it you can travel in time and cross lines and borders. By crossing the lines you will go against something and someone, and you will know people and yourself. “Disunited” stands for a community of disgration and explosion, because Britain gives and takes culture and identity as a commodity. This creates new challenges and opportunities that you can take part in or waste, but only before your passport expires.
My name is Leta Gallo, heir to war children. I was born in Ethiopia, in Sebeta and grew up in Milan. I have been living and studying in London for 4 years.
My childhood made me think that art was a waste of time, because I thought we should spend time doing more concrete things. But I always had in mind to change the world. Today I see in art the only way to be free, and creativity as a means to unlock things and to get rid of beliefs and chains that keep us tied to the boxes of certain geographical areas or cultures.
