The body is a big sagacity, a plurality with one sense, a war and a peace, a flock and a shepherd.
Our bodies are apt to be our autobiographies.
Frank Gillette Burgess
In this new chapter of her work, with the eloquent title of "Mr X and The Lack of Gravity", Anna Ampariotou investigates the human body simultaneously as a starting point and as a destination. Utilising an effective vocabulary of austere lines and robust forms and electing the deafening presence of the white field as a common, naked landscape, which her heroes inhabit, but also as a vibrant and dominant colour, whose addition or subtraction brings out fresh motifs, she creates stark pictorial fields, haunted by the remembrance of her familiar video art, where the human body, usually nude, plays a leading role: exposed and narrating, it suffers and rests, is tested and feels, encounters and crosses paths with the boundaries of other bodies, collecting foreign experiences and mismatched fragments of humanity.
