Returning Avgitidou

A performance about loss and separation, the impossibility of going back in space and time.
A series of family photos are placed in various sites, at the old city of Nicosia. In every site I stand still while I count, in a ceremonial way, from 1 to 42 (my age at the time). At the last site on the Green line, I place a photo of my parents while I count backwards to one.
