Yannis Karpouzis

ATHENS, A SYSTEM ON TURMOIL (Greece, 2008-2011)

The word 'crisis' doesn't refer just to economics, but also to psychological process. The economic measures taken when the Greek national debt become untenable have plunged people from Utopia to Dystopia. By means of abstraction in the photographic image, Yannis Karpouzis seeks to make this new psychological reality of Athens palpable. The city, once full of light, is swallowed by darkness. The Olympic dream has shattered. What remains is uncertainty.
