Christos Delidimos’ Anthology of Cracks examines the overlapping field of performance with ceramic arts.
Initial point for this project has been the artist’s eager desire to animate his visual worlds, represented throughout the years in drawings and sculptural installations. Anthology of Cracks as a study investigates the relationships of body and object, movement and space in a single continuum, as well as the similarities that the body shares as a tool and as the object itself, in ceramics and performance. The primary object around which the performance evolves is a revisited amphora. Amphora undergoes different transformations, functioning as a transitional object, thus revealing antiquity’s perceptions over ceramic arts, as also alliances with human anatomy.
Anthology of Cracks is a performative piece that reflects the stimulation of flesh and skin, in the behaviour of the ceramic surface. As such, the ceramic shell mutates in an organic porous, that senses and memorises the performer’s actions. Anthology of Cracks (crack as the symptom of trauma) is an ascesis of acceptance. With the support of NEON Organization.
