With glamour and sensuality as usual, this scene of suggested orgy is the vision of the artist about a brothel¹s backstage, spied through a keyhole. We see women as slaves of prostitution, some are chained, others areattached with laces, others else are hostages of alcohol or other substances, thinking that it helps them to overcome the harsh reality of their profession. Once more the message is clear, eyes are shut as to deny it, but prostitution is a taboo, we see it but we keep it silent.

On the Wall

The artist highlights the everyday life of a brothel where the prostitutes are on display, each of them with her personality and her value, as on a menu presented to customers to make their choices. In the meantime, they express on the wall their feelings of prostitutes, as prisoners of their condition, but also as women with a free mind.
