The image that stops your eye, pulls at your gut, makes you uncomfortable, makes you want. Sometimes all of these at once. The picture you'll remember. It changes you just a little.

"TOMB WOMB" | Installation
Alatza Imaret | Thessaloniki
Greece | 2012-13
Stratis Tavlaridis has created a major installation for Alatza Imaret. By utilizing his personal experience and the architectural and historical elements of the monument, he attempts a modern transcription of a funerary monument, namely the tomb of King Philip the Second.The entrance of the new tomb opens to the viewer and invites him to a tangible experience that evolves in a vertebrating way into the interior of the building. The artist deconstructs surfaces ,creates perforated geometric patterns, handles light and completes the installation in three steps-passages in the area.The former ‘Colorful Poorhouse’ is converted into an atmospheric installation dominated by white. The imposing size of the venue, the designed and defuse natural lighting, the shadows and the energy that has been left as a remnant of a bygone era, plus a different religious culture, animate this work of art, renewing the public’s relation with it.

Soñé que me perseguía una jauría de enloquecidos vendedores…
De esos que venderían a su madre por una buena comisión, aprendices de Mefistófeles…
Me ofrecían a gritos la vida eterna…
La vida eterna….os imagináis?
La vida eterna……… Puede haber un infierno peor ?

I dreamed that I was chasing a pack of crazed sellers … Of those who would sell his mother for a good commission, Mephistopheles learners … I offered eternal life shouting … Eternal life … .Os imagine? Eternal life ……… may be a worse hell?

Vi una foto en Tumbrl……
Supongo que está tomada con motivo de  la celebración de Halloween, aunque en realidad  lo desconozco..también podría tratarse de una feria ambulante.
Lo supongo por que,  por esas  fechas y con motivo de esa celebración, cada año aparecen cientos de fotos similares, y aunque algunas resultan terroríficas, esta siempre llama mi atención.
Este año la volví a ver y la guardé para estudiarla detenidamente..
En la imagen se pueden observar, en un ambiente rural, un grupo de personas disfrazadas…
En el centro hay un niño vestido de…….duende?
El resto de los personajes están tocados con mascaras de cartón piedra y extraños vestidos que les confieren un aspecto grotesco.
La expresión del niño, en la foto, es neutra, está mirando fijamente al fotógrafo…
Pero yo quiero imaginar que ese niño se está sintiendo solo e intimidado, rodeado de esos seres siniestros, algunos con expresiones diabólicas y quien sabe con que indescriptibles intenciones…
Yo quiero imaginar que ese niño rodeado de monstruos está viviendo una jornada en el infierno…
Lo sé…. yo podría ser uno de ellos…

I saw a picture in Tumblr …… I suppose it is taken to celebrate Halloween, but really desconozco..también could be a carnival. I suppose that, by that time and because of that celebration, each year there are hundreds of similar photos, and although some are terrifying, this always catches my attention. This year I saw and saved it to study carefully .. In the picture you can see, in a rural setting, a group of people dressed … In the center is a child …… .duende dress? The rest of the characters are played with papier mache masks and strange costumes that give them a grotesque appearance. The expression of the child in the photo, is neutral, is staring at the photographer … But I would imagine that that child is feeling lonely and intimidated, surrounded by these sinister beings, some diabolical expressions and who knows with that indescribable intentions … I would imagine that that child is living surrounded by monsters a day in hell … I know. … I could be one of them …
