For Vida Privada, the artist spent many days with three tenants whose homes are protected by grills, documenting the worlds and stories of their everyday lives. While her presence may seem intrusive, her choice to illustrate these scenes transforms each space, preserving its intimacy in a way that photos would not. This series of illustrations, which will be arranged into three unique books, will briefly be presented at Despacio before being gifted to the residents it portrays.
