Portrait of a girl in Athens.
We are in a rush since the moment we are born, for everything and anything. We live in this world and we learn to follow that way, follow it without questioning it. Follow something but never ask why. We never hear Life itself, Life so raped and thrown away, that (She) screams. (She) can be heard in every place, (She) lives in everyone and everything. (She) screams. Nobody hears (Her), nobody notices (Her) as everybody is in a hurry. Everything in vain.
‘ They were in one side and I was in the other. I felt sick, tired. I couldn’t breath. I thought I heard it.’
She is the one that leads me, giving me the energy to go out there and search for her, trying listen to her, feel her and eventually capture her and give her life, so I might understand her and find from where she comes and why. Sometimes she’s strong and others not, sometimes she’s colorful and others not. She is trapped trying to be heard.
