"MEMORY FRAGMENT"

 

Memory is an inherent quality of human existence. The works presented amount to fragments of memory.

They hint to former circumstances: Signs – Fragments – Finds.

Their origin lies in human presence: straight lines, curves, volume, scale. They invite the viewer to mentally reconstruct the world to which they allude. These works/photos of models are brought to the fore. Thus, the fragment assumes a primary function: the “part of the world” becomes “the world in its totality”.

 

“I often went for long walks exploring the Greek landscape, strolling through these rugged rocks, treading the theophorous earth—sown with potsherds—amidst the gaping mouths of wells that spoke of the ancient dwellers of this land, of my land, and all the while I was shaping its conscience, I was plotting its history.”

 

Dimitris Pikionis, Notes on Greece, 1968
