The Truth is in the Soil
The series started evolving when the death of my father sparked a journey back home and the exploration of traditional Greek funerary rituals. Making a work about grief requires a journey through memory and memory loss. In the crossroads of performance and staged emotion, I aim to look at how mourning contextualises modern regimes of looking, reading, and feeling with regards to the subject of death. A language of thought that is spoken elliptically emerged to become the mark of a fragmentary dialogue with the endless tracing of loss. To me, these images work as vehicles for mourning perished ideals of prosperity and belonging, attempting to tell something further than their subjects by creating a space where death can exist.
