Do Nothing - Thessaloniki
We are constantly required to push our limits, to reach for the next achievement, to move on to the next step, while standing still has almost become a taboo. We exhaust ourselves, while we feel guilty even recognising the need for rest.
The open call "Do Nothing" by Myro Gallery expressed a notion I had been working around for quite some time now - that exact need to recognise the importance of pausing, of slowing down, of taking a step back - and being a part of the exhibition felt very fitting.
The first image towards visualising this notion was made back in 2017, while the second one was finalised this year.
