about this work
'Loaded' was originally created for a group exhibition as a result of an international project initiated by a group of French curators and artists. The process started in 2009 as a workshop in Cyprus. The exhibition was held in 2010 at the La Maison de la Culture d’Amiens, France, curated by Brent Klinkum, and was part of a series of events including discussion panels, presentations and video screenings in Amiens and at the Centre George Pompidou, Paris. The installation consists of a number of different suitcases as defined by age, design and size, all of which are manipulated with a simple intervention. The artist wanted to play with dichotomy of trauma and deliberation, suffer and freedom; "With....the feeling of being displaced or loosing possessions from one side and from an other the relief of starting from zero without the heavy legacy of the past".
