Secrets & Crises

Zoe Hatziyannaki

The photographs of the series ‘Secrets & Crises’ portray buildings in the centre of Athens which accommodate public institutions. In each diptych, the photograph of the building is juxtaposed with an enlarged detail derived from the same photograph. These blurred and secretive images seem to imply what is happening inside those buildings in an attempt to identify possible incriminating evidence hidden behind their straightforward facades. However, nothing is disclosed and only vagueness remains to suggest the questionable role of the State and its institutions today in Greece. A role which is seriously disputed under the current crisis.
