Accidental Woman (2007) Text Works (Various Media)

The glass is broken, neon light, 2007
I await for a moment to pass, White ink on black paper, 2007, 20x30cm
I woke up again, White ink on black paper, 2007, 20x30cm
Always looking, White ink on black paper, 2007, 20x30cm

The above works were developed for the exhibition Accidental Woman that took place at Kalfayan Galleries, Athens in November 2007, in collaboration with painter Despina Stokou. The exhibition was built upon the accidental meeting of two women that became the starting point for the unfolding of a duel. Utilising a range of media, languages and narrative strategies, the two artists explored the accidental, a detail that has just caught the eye, what lies in between words and images, what stays in the back of the mind.

This body of works mark a departure for Aikaterini Gegisian into exploring text and language as a form of drawing. The works focus on moments of confusion and fragility that build up ambiguous narratives.

Notes on a missed reality (2007) 30x20 cm (Ink on hand made paper)

Notes on a missed reality consist of a series of works based on current news articles sourced from the Internet. Echoing the form of a mind map, the work signifies an attempt to make sense of a perceived and recorded reality through a system of linkages and associations, an attempt to navigate through a vast data of information. Note on a missed reality, Version 1 is the first piece in the series and particularly focuses on issues of geographical and environmental change, looking for lost paradises, present realties and fantasies of a probable future. It was made especially for the exhibition Atropa Vanitas, Cosmos of Culture, Athens.

The image unfolded (2005) 1.5x10 m (Colour marker on paper)

The piece was generated from words collected from writing that existed in the walls of my studio. The starting point was the attempt to document the space of the idea, to create an inventory of the artist’s practice. The piece became a way to explore the relation between word, image and story, a way of developing an alternative to the sequencing of events and shots in a film. It is based on the repetition of the words ‘image’ and it is ‘unfolding’. The work seeks to document the gaps between images, sounds and sentences
