'Eye' (2017)
Photography Exhibition by Ellie Tsatsou
July 21-30th, 2017 | Gaitis Hall, Pyrgos - Tinos, GR
_____

Ellie Tsatsou’s photographic exhibition “Eye” brings together images inspired by the Cyclades. The Tinian green marble quarry, the elegant ‘Portara’ of Naxos, the big blue of Amorgos, the outwordly scenery of Sarakiniko in Milos, the moon above the Saronic Gulf are some of the landscapes that form the present curation, inviting the viewer into a journey of introspection and serenity. Alongside the photographic works, the exhibition showcases Ellie’s three books (‘Alphabet’ [2016], ‘A Family You Choose’ [2017] and ‘From the path the water’ [2017]) as well as the photo essay created at the marble sculpture studio of Tinian artist Onourfrios Desypris (Ysternia, August 2016). | With special thanks to Pneumatiko Kentro Panormou.

 

 

'as long as you want' (2017)

Somewhere (2017) - Running Time: 09:25
Fragments of various writings from 2010 - 2017. This visual composition complimented the homonym sound installation during the show "as long as you want" (Gallery Iris, Athens/Greece - May 2017). 

 


"In her first solo exhibition entitled ‘as long as you want’ at Gallery Iris in Athens, Ellie Tsatsou introduces herself to her homeland with a cumulative, interdisciplinary body of work that has shaped her development as an artist. Through a sequence of places and experiences, the exhibition retains photography at its core, however it is branching out to include a record of images, sounds and writings that reflect Ellie’s aesthetic signature and creative process from 2008 to the present moment.

The artworks included in the show are interrelated through the theme of the landscape, described either visually (as photographic representations), or sonically (as soundscapes in the sound installation ‘Somewhere’), or even verbally (through fragmented written forms). The noise from the streets of Manhattan, the conversations in the photographic studios during work placements, a summery evening under the sky of the Mediterranean, a witnessing line to the vastitude of the sea, an impression of the female body juxtaposed to the productive forces of nature. The landscape becomes the means of reading and defining space, yet it is being used as an interpretative tool; a medium that reveals to us the way with which Ellie perceives & decodes life unfolding."
