Text on method / Katia
Main pillars in my working themes are appropriation, imagination and dual realities, scale, the logic in language versus visual/image communication, perception of time and space and the exploration of historical characters.
Currently I’m using mostly video as a way to communicate my ideas and research. One of my theme works is building a kind of monument of certain people (in this case the Greek poet K. Cavafis) that interest me, I admire or I feel related to. Based both on real and fictional elements I placed then the characters in a certain imaginary situation. Additionally, I’m making miniatures set ups which I’m afterwards filming, creating a story guided by the materials and their interconnection. Finally, at an early stage, is my research on problematics of language. From Russel to Wittgenstein and to the Theory of colors. Eventually based on interviews of blind people to create objects that will resemble a sense of color. The objects will be distributed to the people of the interviews (maybe?) and then make a film.
