GEOMETRY OF FEAR

GEOMETRY OF FEAR (2012), single channel video installation, Digibeta transferred on Blu-ray disc, duration 7 minutes.

In 2012, Greece was on the verge of an economic collapse
and its imminent exit from Eurozone, became known as
Grexit. The two successive national elections, the first on
May 10th and the second on June 17th left Greece for 37
days without government. For the first time in its history,
there were no sessions in the Greek Parliament.
At that time of no governance, I requested permission to film
the interior of the plenary hall. It is perhaps the only time
that an external director was granted permission to film the
Greek Parliament empty. The film documents a unique
image of stillness, of a space otherwise at the epicenter
of domestic and international political turmoil.
