Light Gallows
with Kyriacos Kyriakides

At the beginning of the year, Marina shared a video where partners hold a Cypriot lemon between their foreheads as they dance. It made me think of force and compression made alter- nately natural and artificial. She was proposing a re-enactment for her show we were planning for April, and we fantasised about how to invite visitors into this action. The year then continued to change our conversations about being together and the tendencies of the different worlds we were living in.
The sculptural works installed for Light Gallows were produced over the last months by Marina and Kyriacos as they worked together in Limassol. Arriving to Amsterdam by mail, they are like a series of greedily snatched, crudely poetic gestures.
