Through the trilogy Aegina 1, 2 and 3, 2013, I attempt a dialogue with the exhibits of the Archaeological Museum, the tombstones Kapodistrias - first Governor of Greece - brought on the island of Aegina (then capital) to reinforce the new ethnic identity. The work deals with issues regarding place: land (1), historical site (2) and country (3). By using local clay, hay and whitewash, as well as indirect references to Folk Art, a flowing space is born between the ancient and the more recent past. The Aegina visitor is invited here to create meaning while being guided by familiar volumes, patterns and lines. (Catalogue text.)
