MOBBING VOODOO

Photography - featured in  the fourth in issue #4 of GAP modern art  magazine, curator: The Reading Group, Athens 2006

With Mobbing Voodoo, I  explore my interest in the world of managers and mainly the issue of  prestige, an element 
I find exceptionally unstable and dubious. Whether in the workspace or his private space, a manager may receive  attacks 
from a previously friendly environment, an environment that  brought him forth once. These attacks aim at his annihilation 
and are  well known as Mobbing, Bullying and Ijime. One can collect an entire catalogue of hostile behaviors that  
maintain a lot in common with the methods of subjugation and  elimination of a person’s identity through imprisonment as  
described for example in the work of Dr. Schein: "Re-nurturing  the adults".
The work examines the case  of Voodoo practice, namely the activation of a powerful symbolic act  deemed lethal by 
the community that is aimed at the annihilation of a  member who has violated a rule (as when somebody accepts the magic 
bone of the tribe's warlock.) It is a process that can be  automatically activated through internal mechanisms following 
the violation of a taboo. Mobbing Voodoo further examines the establishment of such powerful  symbolic rules 
in the community of managers.

 

 

IF YOU SEEK FOR ELDORADO

Installation with video and prints, group exhibit “Photosynkyria” curator: Thanasis Moutsopoulos, Salonica 2005

Pathography: Re-registrations - Stratifications
Images from the disease * Images and events pulled out from memory and the subconscious,
re-registering themselves via other, totally unfamiliar, images, forming from then
and on a cluster of images that remains indivisible like a single organism.
(Their interlocking allows the emerging of traits that make us indeed realize that
the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts.)
Replacements, restorations.
According to Sacks, the personal history of the patient should be included in his health
background and overall patient identity, such as the accumulated experiences that
may have caused his disease or have even helped him confronting it.
A disease usually has a structure and a culmination akin to dramaturgy.
The difference is that each moment the patient experiences the past and the future
of his disease syncronically in the present..
My body is in ruins. I try to put in order the elements, the coincidences and
the culmination of my disease.
The image of an old woman who “was evicted” from her own house. She remained outside
with her very few belongings, watching the house until it got demolished.
The face of an old friend reminded me of the old woman, making me think how her face
wore out through the years and my own obsession with this.
Images from the harbor in (Thessaloniki) – Streets at night
The space lying in between
The critical moments
The scraps and the meet of spaces
The void and the silence
The surgery
The camera coming out of the body, purging itself from all these interiors.
