A Última Lagosta

In this work I sought a language in dialogue with my work. A fantastic context, where big animals invert their scale with the lobster and attack it. The gigantic lobster becomes a main dish for the animal kingdom to enjoy this expensive and exquisite dish. With a dramatic shade of blood, it makes us think that we are the next to attack these edible animals that are there, on a platter, ready to be placed in the oven.
