Yfantourgeio/Weaving Mill — The Workplace
In her art practice, Marina Xenofontos raises questions about the relation of the contemporary human with issues of memory and ideology, using the moving image and documentary style to record situations and spaces of everydayness, exploring proximity and distance. In Topos or Closer to deja vu than nostalgia (Cyprus, the Island of Love) (2012) the feeling of an imminent change leads to an observation of the refraction of light. Sunlight Vandalism (2020) can be described as a portrait of Ayşe, which focuses on the grammar of the spaces and bodies, whilst We were supposed to have fun, which first took form in 2011 but is in a constant state of ‘reconstruction’, various moments from Xenofontos life are montaged to create a poetics of coincidences.
