This time of global quarantine has changed our daily life and also our nighttime. Unusual images, nightmares, wanderings, quarantine backgrounds come alive through our dreams. Quarantine Dreams is a project that aims to create a collective space to share our dreams from these nights of quarantine.

Something about playing with vulnerability and strength.
Inspired by the master Nobuyoshi Araki.
TINALS is a project created and developed by Andrea Provinciali.
A collection of paper tapes, each one illustrated by a love song.

I illustrated Gloomy Sunday by Billie Holiday, take a look here!

| l y r i c s |

Sunday is gloomy,
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coach of
Sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you?

Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is Sunday,
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I
Have decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles
And prayers that are said I know
Let them not weep
Let them know that I'm glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressin' you
With the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessin' you

Gloomy Sunday

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart, dear
Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is tellin' you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday
