the thief/ 2017

hiap/ augusta gallery/ suomenlinna/ helsinki/ finland
a collaboration with vassilis vlastaras as part of his project condensation cube/
video-sound performance/

using a video from youtube as a visual platform that shows the arrest of a thief in a local market in a small Greek town while the passers-by are prosecuting him we experimented with sounds and words from selected comments that appeared underneath it/ emphasising on the brutality of these words from a discussion that was formed between racists, homophobic, fanatics, different religious and political parties, vv transferred their texts on the floor with a  black charcoal / i performed the words verbally by singing or repeatedly forming a “rhythm of brutality” while vv was gradually erasing the written text with his body till it was completely smeared.
