On 16th of August at the exhibition and open studio day I did the final performance COCOON which I created during the Naked State Project. Intergrated in the performance was a small Land Art installation. The subjects of the performance are the body and the relations, connections in the context of nature and social envirnoments, vulnerability, inner strife, borders and space

Land Art Installation for Performance

During the the Naked State Project I created two new performance, one of them with title Cocoon.
For this performance I specially set up a Land Art installation which is a intregal part of the performance. However as this installation will be destroy during the performance, I had to set it up several times as I perform more then once. But at the same time the body of the performer becomes a also a important part of the installation.

Naked State

Naked State 
07 August to 17 August 2018, Bare Oaks, East Gwillimbury, Ontario L0G 1V0, Canada 

The aim of this 10-day residency is to create artworks that explore the nude human body in context of nature, culture and art. For the duration of the residency, the artists creating works that explore questions such as: What is nudity? Does stripping away clothing rid us of class, gender, and personal expression?; Do the connections between our bodies and the land change when nude? Is nudity always sexual? What is the role of the nude in historical and contemporary art?. Is it possible to be civil in the nude?; Is there a natural state for human being? Residents work individually or collaboratively to create artworks that explore these questions through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance art, dance, sound art, media art, etc.

I am one of the artist who take part in this residency, because the human body plays an important part in my work. Beside my collaboration project  Unfolding-Unwrapped which  I hope to conduct during the residency, at the same I  focus on a individually project, I tried out already some short video and video performances sequences. At this stage everything is experimental, but to be selfcritical I am not very convienced and not very satisfied at this stage of the residence

Unfolding-Unwrapped in Greece

Unfolding-Unwrapped in Greece
Images from the performance Unfolding-Unwrapped. I conducted the performance with my two assistants Marialena Tsantila and Agni Freri on 28th of July 2018 on Kamara Square, Ano Syros, Greece in conjunction with the Eyes Walk Festival
We performed twice that evening variant 1 and the variant 2 of Unfolding-Unwrapped in one flow.
But just like all previous performances , the performance is never the same, even the concept and principles stay the same. Each time differenent interpretations by the participants and adapted to the local environment
