Tauton or I (d) Entity, 1984

"New Creators", Goulandri Museum of Modern Art, Andros, Greece, curated by Manos Stefanidis

Βox, canvas, dry pigment, neon light. 

220 x 70 x 20 cm

As the title I (d) Entity suggests, the work investigates the issue of identity as relation of the 'Ego'/ the Self to the 'Other'/ the Alien.   
This piece, standing as an object in real space while, at the same time, creating the impression of an opening, a door, functions as an abstract "mirror" where one projects oneself hence the title Tauton (tautology).

Τhe spectator is called to investigate, through this abstraction, the object/subject confrontation while becoming aware of the reciprocal character of this relationship.
