“I have always been interested in the language of the image, moved by this work, the presence of which can raise certain questions. More than exhibiting an artwork, I prefer to observe, to act, to intervene in such a way that the result is truly something minimal but of the utmost dynamism; and by utmost dynamism I mean the utmost opportunity for one to be able to be present. You are exhibited opposite him (the viewer) who must discover this place, by giving a sign, working in a space that is truly emphatic. Thus, as one musical note follows another, the eye is directed slowly, slowly there, to where there is a small marvel of a something, which is not seen outwardly and which is to reveal itself”, photographs documenting various works and installations, published  on the occasion of the exhibitions ‘Who is Afraid of the Walls?’ at the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art, Athens (2012), and ‘Le Chant du Rossignol’ at Field Institute Hombroich, Neuss (2013), with texts in German, Greek and English by the author and Denys Zacharopoulos, soft cover, 23,5 x 16,50 cm, 150 pages, ed/900, Athens 2013
