the Needle – Konstantina Papantonatou – Katerina Gogou – Greece

In the work the needle, Konstantina Papantonatou is inspired by the collection “Idionym” by Katerina Gogou. The artist begins to sew a path using hairs from her hair. The process to which she devotes herself despite its futility, is accompanied by the fear of breaking the hair that occurs when the sewing path has reached the height of the heart and marks the end of the video. During the video there is a natural sound beyond a moment where the voice of Katerina Gogou is heard, as a reminder of purpose.

Katerina Gogou – Idionym 21 (1981)

It is because we are with the child
and countless times-hug from the middle
we counted the countless stars
and those who said for better years
we ate them by taking out buckets of water
so that they can travel forever
the ships that did not dock
and it is because one and down
we drunk all the sour wines
and we vomit, singing
full of complaints-childish things-
once in July
That’s why if you make a move like that
to caress us
we make a move back
as as not to hit us.
That’s why if it happen’s to love me
please be very careful
how you will hug me. It hurts here.
And here. And there. Don’t ! And here.
And there.
