THE INSIDE IS SUSPICIOUS OF THE OUTSIDE / THE OUTSIDE IS SUSPICIOUS OF THE INSIDE
This work was made on the occasion of Boundaries exhibition in Athens in March 2014.
The outside is not a fixed limit but a moving matter animated by peristaltic movements, folds and foldings that together make up an inside: they are not something other than the outside, but precisely the inside of the outside.
This work is a psychogeographical approach of the building, the neighbourhood and, as an extension, of the whole city. The interior of the house seems to observe the overwhelming changes outside, as if it is trying to understand, to make sense of what is going on out there. The street, the outside is trying also to see inside, in a similar effort to grasp the life of the building. Yet, there is suspicion in both gazes, more like in order to find proofs to blame each other and less to appreciate. As if they deliberately try to ignore the fact that there are no fixed borders between them but only interconnections, foldings of the one into the other in a continuous process of reshaping it.
