About my artwork
Filippos Vasileiou is becoming a part of his structures, a part of his art. He is the engine himself based on the theory of Heraclitus 'interests and the antixoun Of differs kallίstin armonίan'. The contrary converges, and from the differences is born the most beautiful harmony. Everything is done with discord. He makes cumbersome/obscure machines which tend to train the human body and mind. That is just what is happening at ‘Gavala’... Everything is manually operated and the only powerful creature is the man himself through a flood of images and misinformation. In a relatively short period of time the performer helps the viewer to connect those images and shape his own picture. Words that are processed are ypertrofism, overconsumption, insecurity, entrapment, fear and friendship! What is not favorable brings us closer.It is for our own interest. But even when we are near, it is not certain that we will be bonded in harmony. The condition for a harmonic blend and a harmonious cooperation is to contribute to everyone's individuality.
