A slight trace of something
This work is a collection of souvenirs bought by foreign tourists when they travelled to Greece. For several reasons they decided to sell them on eBay auctions and I –having a greek nationality- buy them creating a work that examines both repatriation and missplacement. It is interesting that these mass produced objects are made to be transported ‘back home’ as a travelling evidence and a token of remembrace. These stereotyped icons of culture are a superficial understanding of history but also a history on their own and a paradoxical testimony of personal, unique experience.
