Konstantinos Kostouros: What It Is Like to Be Back

Konstantinos Kostouros: What It Is Like to Be Back

I loved it all.
I did not say anything to anyone.
Neither foreign nor gone: the place of my own present alone.

A handmade work; a man, painted on metal plating; looking at the hours, watching his palms.

An art installation that comes to life through painting, speech, sound and performance.

The journey of a return.

A journey from the palm to the moment standing outside of it; the moment of reflection that death brings; the moment that can exist in life only through art.
