SERAFITA GRIGORIADOU | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION
Filmed by Tokomburu
Production by Inkas Film Productions
Serafita Grigoriadou, actress (1972), Thessaloniki, Greece | The Never-Ending Song
Touching upon issues of immigration and emigration, Serafita Grigoriadou presents a work that references the voice and memory — that is, the voice as a special facet of the soul that is impressed in our memory. Emigration, which has left its indelible mark on Greek history and our collective childhood memories, is transformed into a traditional song, a common motif in her work. The artist traverses the space, repeating her song over and over for eight hours each day, changing positions and levels to transport her voice and her soul’s memories throughout the Benaki Museum, with moments of intensity and silence, with whispers and melodies.
