KYTTAΡΟ/ THE CELL is a participatory artwork that explores the possibility of a group being self-governed without having a leader that takes decisions. Consisting of a hula hoop and a simple set of scores, KYTTAΡΟ/ THE CELL is a peripatetic performance that comes to life from its participants/ co-authors. It was performed on 2020 in Athens and on 2022 at Connective Symposium hosted by Fontys Art School in Tilburg, NL.
Sky-field performative installation (2019) was the third research project of my practice-based PhD hosted by Ulster University, Belfast. The installation was activated by the com-presence of the participants who were invited to improvise in a synergistic physical action within the installation space. Sky-field comprised a video depicting the process of murmuration filmed by the artist, a white canvas sheet with a blend of rice and wheat flour, audio input edited upon Y, Kalaitzis piece ‘Pneumon’, a structure with white clothesline stitched to each other.
Waste-is-land (2018) performative installation is the second research project of my practice-based PhD research in Ulster University, Belfast Campus. The piece was activated and shaped by participants each time in a cyclic way. Waste-is-land incorporated a vocal improvisation based on Wasteland by T.S. Eliott performed by Eleni Kolliopoulou and James King, a hanging pot with a lilac tree, an open worn suitcase with coffee ground and soil, worn clothes, a bucket. The piece addressed the embodiment of Lifedeath a core concept of Butoh dance.
Seabed (2018) was a performative installation, first artistic research project during my practice-based PhD questioning immersion via stillness via individual experience- permanence within the artifact.
Inspired by Butoh dance notation ‘Mother Sea’, invited the participant to reconnect in a psycho-physical level with the installation space. Soundtrack from Atsushi Takenouchi and Hiroko Komiya Pendulum sea, Accumulation.
