Lone Animals arises from the idea of a young sailor who is plunged into danger and darkness. Behind him are old and more experienced men, but all that experience is of no use here.

Beneath them there is something unknown, animals that search for movement above the depths, and sooner or later find it.

The reflections of the nocturnal water dance on the bodies of the mermaids, and speak to us of the magical, the beautiful, and the tenebrous.
