Description

Art happens slowly in Eugenia Raskopoulos’ installation: Footnotes. Certain letters appear and then fade away. Words are formed with stuttering gestures. Nothing is spoken. A language emerges from the spitting onto and the caressing of a surface. We assume that the limbs which are the focus of this articulation are those of the artist. She performs language. She creates words with her toe as it rubs a fluid onto the floor. The words are in English and Greek. Her gestures make visible familiar words that suggest a complicity between the elements and desire. Nature, sexuality and language are brought into light and then they all evaporate.
