Hands Portrait with Paint

Hands Portrait with Paint

Alexis Andreou

Alexis Andreou is a London based documentary photographer and visual artist whose work deals with contemporary matters of war aftermath and bordering practises. 

Homerou 10 investigates the framework of memory and postmemory between artist and his mother. It is a re-enactment of olfactory, sonic and visual senses that come together, aiming to harvest the memory of the mother’s pre-invasion childhood. The project uses the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus and the following population exchange between Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriots as its historical basis. It goes against the grain of collective, institutionalised memory to call for a preservation of personal memory and the audience’s questioning of institutionalised, official versions of histories.
