The work “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” appropriates the first scene of Shakespeare’s play in order to reconstruct an internal monologue, dealing with this sense of loss. Following a circular pattern the phrases remain unresolved, oscillating between dissidence and disappointment.
The work was presented in the “Summer in the Middle of the Winter” exhibition in Kunsthalle Athena. The show, as its dipole title implies, engaged with a pervasive mood, the feeling of uncertainty. An uncertainty “concurrent with the current socio-political shift, nevertheless not immune to interpretation”.
