At the present moment, on our computer screen we are confronted with a flow of images and texts that sometimes inform us and sometimes misinform us, sometimes terrorize us and sometimes reassure us, sometimes promise to keep alive our illusion that nothing has change. And yet, reality has changed and is changing every day. We observe it, we feel it, we know it. MOMus, continuing the “Resilience Project”, is expanding its resilience and wants to communicate more with everyone who needs it. Share with us an image created by you that has artistic qualities, in response to the conditions of confinement that we experience. The aim is not simply to create social substitutes for our loneliness, nor simply to protect basic values and acquired rights, but, under this extreme and unexpected condition of everyday life that has affected all of us indiscriminately, to redefine values such as freedom, equality, justice, free time, solidarity and access to the basic goods of health, education and culture. Comment our new, hopefully temporary, way of life and of communication with your own photo, your painting, drawing or other visual medium that may be in the form of image, animation, sound, text or video. Give your own tone and let's make the digital album of these days all together.
I am a visual artist based in Athens Greece. I am in quarantine since 12 of March 2020. I create dystopic but silent environments to explore women's social identity, the imprints of prenatal existence and childhood in the present and the meaning of intermediate states. Objects' collection and their reconstruction in a new context, handmade constructions and the insertion of the female body, which escapes from the classical depiction, are my methods to visualize my themes. I use photography and video installation and i create mainly typological narratives. This method gives me the feeling that these compositions are indestructible over time. At the same time that they are being photographed or videotaped, they automatically belong to the past but their digital footprint remains unchanged and available to the viewer for continuous observation.https://www.instagram.com/catherine_chatzidimitriou/
