December: Collective exhibition & Pop-up gallery store made in Brussels

Collective exhibition & pop up gallery with Workspace Brussels starting this Friday 2/12 at Halles St Gery. For the occasion I made limited and numbered prints of a series counting 10 pictures I gathered under the title: ‘The louder the city, the deeper the sea’. This series is part of ‘Everywhere but on the wall’, a project aiming to bring pictures into our everyday spaces among our daily objects, and not necessarily framed or hung up. Use them as bookmarks, wishing cards or to liven up a coffee table…

The exhibition and pop-up store will run through December, come and say hi!

Opening: Friday 2 December 6:00PM

December 2-23 at Halles St-Géry
Open every day from 10:00 – 20:00

As much as they can

From Athens to Hydra, I took a film roll with me last month and made this series. Between chaos and hope, resignation and sparks of different paths to follow and ways to live, I admire the strangers, the neighbors and the dear people who happen to be my friends and family, who despite everything, are still standing, still trying and still refusing when no one is watching. As much as they can.

As much as you can // Autant que possible

And if you can’t shape your life the way you want,     Et si tu ne peux pas mener la vie que tu veux,
at least try as much as you can                                      essaie au moins de faire en sorte, autant
not to degrade it                                                                que possible: de ne pas la gâcher
by too much contact with the world,                            dans trop de rapports mondains,
by too much activity and talk.                                      dans trop d’agitation et de discours.
 
Try not to degrade it by dragging it along,           Ne la galvaude pas en l’engageant à tout propos,
taking it around and exposing it so often            en la traînant partout et en l’exposant
to the daily silliness                                                  à l’inanité quotidienne
of social events and parties,                                  des relations et des fréquentations,
until it comes to seem a boring hanger-on.        jusqu’à en faire une étrangère importune.

Constantin P. Cavafy, 1913

Όσο Mπορείς, Κωσταντίνος Π. Καβάφης

Κι αν δεν μπορείς να κάμεις την ζωή σου όπως την θέλεις,
τούτο προσπάθησε τουλάχιστον
όσο μπορείς: μην την εξευτελίζεις
μες στην πολλή συνάφεια του κόσμου,
μες στες πολλές κινήσεις κι ομιλίες.

Μην την εξευτελίζεις πηαίνοντάς την,
γυρίζοντας συχνά κ’ εκθέτοντάς την
στων σχέσεων και των συναναστροφών
την καθημερινήν ανοησία,
ώς που να γίνει σα μια ξένη φορτική.
