Islands on my mind grow on my back @ Openshow Studio





 
Vitrina Project @ Openshowstudio by Sofia Toubourra
solo exhibition, December 2021 - January 2022


"Islands on my mind grow on my back was created in 2021, continuing Palpana’s work on the subjects of the ground and the landscape.

The colourful, heavy islands were built out of a layering process in order to be viewed, touched, walked upon and carried, or in order to remind us of a violent exclusion".

“Estimated Break”
Archeological Museum of Paros, July 2021
solo exhibition curated by Natasa Biza
Paros Festival “Gazing at the Landscape”

 

"... What for a sculpture or a statue is considered to be damage brought by forces that separate the members from the body or break the face, when it comes to the landscape it is but a neutral process. It is a state of continuous formation happening under constant yet barely perceived violence. Estimated Break ponders on the landscape as an interaction between forces producing an ever-changing result".

Islands on my mind grow on my back

 




  
 
 
 
Islands –

Of sea-washed-plastic blue

On life-jacket orange

On beach-foam white

On dunaliella-salina pink

On slippery-deck blue

On my-recurrent-colour green –

On my mind

Grow on my back.

My dream landscapes call for electric arms

 
 
...And then, underneath, there is this whole mass of internalized impossibilities 
   revealed in glimpses in dreams, where unreachable landscapes open ahead 
   of me in alien colours.

View of Me









View of Me, 2017

https://vimeo.com/251144436

 

- Take in the view of me! -

A bodily memory of rhythms and mechanics involved in the making of the sculptural object and a pondering on landscape contemplation

An exchange of attributes between receptor-bodies and body-receptors, that cushion, wrap, envelop, compress, bend, stress, strain, tear


Inherent to my work the relationship with categories of the natural environment and geological space is recurringly related to globalized extreme biopolitical conditions. In my videos the individual acting body appears as an interface with surrounding elements that cannot be reached except through primary experience. In View of Me this kind of physicality is extended to the relationship with the sculptural object, the body mechanics and the rhythms involved in its making.

Δύστροπο, απωθητικό και δύσοσμο υλικό, μαλακό και ελαστικό, υγρό που αργά στερεοποιείται σε σκληρές πτυχώσεις αφήνοντας ρωγμές και σχισμές προς το βλαβερό, οργανικό και μαύρο.

"Foteini Palpana’s installation If you were written on ice you would be equally indecipherable focuses on the visual information, the tactile relations and the remnants of a violent dialectic organized around a steady observer. We are dealing with the recreation of hermetically sealed surfaces bearing the signs of indecipherable writings. The network of crevices on the surface of a rock is viewed by the artist as a cryptogram that can be transcribed, but not necessarily interpreted."
