Alexandros Plomaritis in a Greek
artist born and raised on Thassos Island and now based in Thessaloniki. His work
is governed by a socio-political quality through the practice of performance.
He explores issues of the current political state of events, identity and
history, however he always returns to his very personal experiences in which motifs
and symbols from the everyday interact, seeking identification and common
grounds with his audience.
At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL
PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, Plomaritis presents self-reflectio, a performance that deals with the reflection of the self and the self as reflection. A fragmented mirror produces a falsified
image of unity and light. The audience is asked to participate in the
production of its own representation, and eventually reassess the role of optics
in defining subjectivity.
