The city of Valencia is about to celebrate the fallas. Among the monuments that will be devoured by the flames, “Això també passarà” (“This will also hapen”) stands out above all others. A woman meditating, more than 20 metres high, showing a message of silence and reflection in the face of a frenetic world and signed by the internationally renowned urban artist, ESCIF. As if it were a premonition, the party is suddenly paralysed by the appearance of a pandemic ravaging the planet. The meditator dawns one day wearing a mask and her figure becomes one of the global icons of the pandemic. An atmospheric and introspective journey of the meditator, from noise to silence, from celebration to confinement, from life to ashes.
