Pandemic is a tragedy. Events went out of hand. Especially at the beginning of it, well before the death toll reached its peak, panic spread globally, speculation became the new normal, scarcity fed the paranoia.
The way we reacted to the pandemic at its first stage was, almost, a surrealist act. Inspired by real events and by the famous work "The Treachery of Images", also known as "This is Not a Pipe", by Surrealist Belgian painter René Magritte, "Ceci n'est pas une pandémie" triptych is post-glitch surrealism in times of Coronavirus pandemic.
The triptych is composed of "The Surgical Mask", "The Hand Sanitizer" and "The Toilet Paper".
