• December 2020 | The poem Tree Memory was published in the edition All Day, All Night (Onassis Foundation). It was edited by Laure Jaffuel. “Dealing with the subject of the public space in Athens, the book is the outcome of a research during The Critical Practices Program at Onassis AiR, in Spring 2020. While the research period overlapped with the strange times of the global pandemic and the lockdown in Greece, the notion of public space became even more urgent to address.”

• December 5/6, 2020 | I took part in the Aphrodite* queer-feminist film festival which was hosted online by the Greek Film Archive (Tainiothiki). In the video-poem “Hack All Genders,” I explore ‘queer mystique’ in advertising, inspired by the model and actress Jenny Shimizu, and also the concept of the fairy – ‘the gender of verbal transgression’ –. The modern fairies subvert language and gender while at the same time exposing the History that exposes them. This is a visually updated version than the one that was published in Mai Journal.
