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.
