Live performance from Tales, Mimicries & Mythologies exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery, February 2019
Counting Stars is a multidisciplinary body of work, comprising of live and video performances, as well as props arranged into a site-specific installation for the ‘Tales, Mimicries & Mythologies’ group exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery ( Feb. 19).
Borrowing objects from everyday life associated with cleaning, Counting Stars expresses the concerns of an EU migrant living in a post EU referendum Britain, who also identifies as a genderqueer individual. Will there be any implications to life as we know it? Will the rights of those in need of safeguarding be guaranteed?
When Antonis Sideras puts on a ‘Brexit Christmas tree’ dress made out of felt and tinsel, they portray a parody of a blissfully ignorant ‘Lady Youropa’, who is about to be confronted by shocking news. Sideras’ experiments with video performance and a trash x camp aesthetic, satirise Europe’s response following the results of the EU referendum.
