"Prayers is an installation created on an olive tree in its natural setting, and is inspired by the ancient custom known as "tzatzala". Hung on branches in order to summon a cure for ailments, "tzatzala" are piece of clothing offered by the faithful. The artwork is composed by cloth, canvas, threads and cords that are cut, sewn and burnt in parts.
"Seven thousand minutes". An installation for the "Where is the Art?" parallel program of the the Athens Biennale, Destroy Athens, 2007
The work I engage in invariably represents a continual dialogue between my mind's eye and my hands. The fingers especially, are highly sensitive corporeal instruments that distinguish we humans among the planets sentient inhabitants. They continue to make and shape our world even now in ways that have profound impact on our material (and immaterial) environments. So my fingers then, in tribute, penetrate my work (figuratively and literally). They become part of the very weave of the canvas. I seek the thread in things and seek to re-establish its path and its purpose.
