In this second work the artist wanted to represent the fragility and the collapse of the securities that the pandemic linked to COVID-19 has generated in our society. The damage caused by this virus has not only been linked to health and the global economy, but also psychological. Just as a seemingly solid and indestructible block of rock can be broken even by water alone, so the whole lifestyle of Western societies has been shattered in front of an invisible enemy. The work is made of wood covered with aluminum. the "broken" parts are actually assembled one to the other, thus making the work unique and indivisible. Having an internal wooden structure, the work can stand outside but suffers from direct contact with the rain.

Born in 1980, Lele De Bonis lives and works as a set designer for several companies in the theater, cinema, amusement parks and outdoor scenography sectors. At the same time he has developed a personal artistic path focused on the concept of recovery and assembly, through which he represents what strikes him most in real life. The human being is the center of his works and he usually represents it in a cynical and grotesque key, without ever condemning it. Wood and aluminum are the materials he uses the most. Beyond the message, their constructive juxtaposition allows him to play and experience infinite alchemical relationships between hot and cold materials. Starting from the concept of “ready made”, through his assemblages, Lele is constantly searching for an aesthetic dialogue aimed at creating a material and chromatic balance between the different materials within a composition. His works are a continuous alternation between explicit references to the current historical context and a more abstract, introspective research.
