Textural Landscapes

Publication Date
November 22, 2021

Artefacts address personal experiences with traumatic landscapes; the division of the Cypriot island, my place of birth, and the very dominant presence of a border, as well as my experience working from home during the pandemic.

“As I write two landscapes, the boundaries blur between two scales of home; the vastness of an island border, and the confines of a domestic interior during a pandemic. Yet the play between familiarization and defamiliarization occurs again and again as the text transforms from one form to another: write, scan, project, photograph, post-process, risoprint, fold. In turning two scales of home from text to texture, the image assumes an uncanny nature; in trying to read me, your misreadings bring new meaning.”
