Eva Papamargariti – The Hollow Sound of Longing

<p>The “Hollow Sound Of Longing” is a series of videos that explore the interconnected themes of uncanny, desire and resilience. The protagonist is a creature whose form stands between a human and an animal, resembling a furry character that exists in simulated environments and acts in ways that can be both familiar and eerie, unexpected or boring.</p> <p></p> <p> The constructed specificity of the surroundings gets into a continuous and disorienting conflict with the grotesque existence of the figure, thus slowly getting more and more blurred and dismantled.</p><p></p><p>Eva Papamargariti is a Greek artist.
