One of the coolest exhibitions that I am taking part is at “The Curated Fridge“, in Boston! Yes, exactly, the exhibition is in a kitchen, on a fridge in Boston!
The idea is very simple: Every 3 months there is an open call with a certain theme and a guest curator selects the best pictures and “hangs” them on the fridge. The idea of the curated fridge was of Yorgos Efthymiadis in an attempt to celebrate fine art photography and connect photographers from around the world.
I am taking part at the Spring 2022 Show themed “Interiors” and curated by Carla Guerrero, founder of femgrafía, a platform for women photographers in Latin America and Spain, and curator of The Poetics, a study of the space through a phenomenological-poetic approach. The photo shown is of my mom sitting exhausted in her living room after a long day taken in Thessaloniki back in 2009.
Pallasmaa once said “The door handle is the handshake of the building”. What happens when we open that door? The interior of a specific room or space is built through decoration styles, light projection and more. Seasons can be seen from the window and the notion of time is more present. For this open call I want to see images that show the relationship between spaces and the people who inhabit and / or transit them.
