'Emotional Clothing' Thessaloniki 2012 -Aspects of Balkan Photography-
I exhibit real clothing as if they are sculptures, as a carrier of memory which except for two dimensional aspect, conducts three dimensions, touch, smell and why not sound. Beside the integral, real sized portraits of my family members.
A t-shirt same as that my father- who has already passed away, 10 years now - used to wear in '70s, in the pottery he was working at. A t-shirt that was sweated by myself and left under the sun a whole summer.
My mother's black slip, which has gone astray but salvaged until today, the witness of adult life counting more than 50 years old.
The wool, on loom entwined nappy of my sister, witnesses also her more than 50 years of living.
Last but not least, my wool singlet, overwhelmed by memories of itching on my childish body.
Therefor, exhibiting in public our most intimate clothing, that had the most intimate contact with our bodies, I attempt myself to commune in a truth which day by day fades in the meantime of our acknowledgment that our memories are always embellished. I attempt to dive in self-acknowledgment through my emotional state. An emotional state of mind which is common to all the human beings.
