Yo Solo

The notion of “liquid modernity” by the philosopher Zygmunt Bauman describes very accurately the transit from a solid, stable and repetitive society to a liquid, flexible and fickle one. There is now a new generation of young adults whom prefer the idle life of the “single” to the more traditional choice of having a family. They consume, read and travel more and are occasionally accused of cultivating excessively their ego.

The industry immediately picked up on them and you can now find parties, rings, fairs and restaurants just for “singles”. There are even designs of “singlestown”.

Paola de Grenet and Maite Carames decided to portray “single” people in situations in which they feel lonely (I) and others where they prefer to be alone (II). The title “YO SOLO” ( I Alone) is like a child’s cry to claim his right to be independent and self sufficient.
