Aikaterini Gegisian: Shifting Geographies

12 May 2016 - 5 June 2016

Shifting Geographies surveys Greek-Armenian artist Aikaterini Gegisian’s moving image practice, and launches with the premiere of My Pink City.  The programme continues with presentations of her early videos and recent audio visual collages.

Completed in 2014, the work explores the complex process of the transition in Armenia from Soviet to contemporary times, examining the period through the lens of fantasy, lifestyle, and transformations of the urban landscape.

Combining location shooting, found footage and archival materials, and often mixing music, environmental sound and recorded voice-over, her works drift between the body and the mind, the subjective and the political, the personal and the social.

The Shifting Geographies programme opens on Thursday 12 May beginning with My Pink City and continues throughout the year from 1 – 23 October and 1 – 23 December.
