EIRINI HORIANOPOULOU

Artist, story teller.

 

eco-femicide ...

Behind closed doors or into the ocean.
when the Ocean is screaming...

What the "other" is?
Memory stains.
The sound of a memory.
.
Who can remember the ocean?
(For the audio of this video, a few extracts of BBC sound effects have been used mixed with my sounds).

ABOUT MY WORK

   I am a multidisciplinary artist with a strong painting background, born and raised in Athens and based in Bath. In my current work, I mostly explore the phenomenology, as well as the philosophical and embodiment aspects, of the relation between water and collective memory and oblivion.

 

   Projecting on human bodies and water surfaces, collecting and composing sounds and filming underwater, layering and painting on acetate sheets and other transparent materials, I create short narrative films and moving images combined with sounds, as well as painted, layered images on lightboxes.

 

   Mostly inspired by water and nature and our lost connection with these, I investigate topics such as ecofeminism, myths (River Lethe), thinking bodies, the poetics of the unseen and the unheard, digital being, nature and the “other”, the eternal circle of life, silence, nature as a commodity, water embodiment and water politics.
