‪’MOVE; now’ is a series of photographs that investigates the relation between the self and the environment, often times you find yourself surrounded by an environment that is hindering your growth and forcing you to be in a position that you know if you stay any longer you will lose the essence of yourself, and it makes you decay with the loss of movement. ironically, in this series of photographs the sculptural object is placed in water that is a substance considered to be the source of life and growth. what might be perceived by others as growth inducing can also be a reason to drown and suffocate. ‬



Fatma Al Ali (b.1994) received her bachelors degree in Fine Arts from the university of Sharjah, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, 2018. her work often questions ideas of materiality of an object, Contradictions in terms of fragility and delicacy. She has joined multiple group exhibitions both locally and internationally.

2 | Zoe Sklepa | CLUB OF THE WAVES

Silence suits me You are like me I can come close to you without my feet A balmy Polynesia comes through me A yellow lit shore The hair is tangled and the eyes glow Electrified atmosphere He just appears Faded steps are devoted to and then lost in the narrow streets Turning back to the bottom, like an old debt Getting dark, dull song You will leave tomorrow I will sleep at your feet, like a multipling star Into living water I unloaded my old self The world is simple I kept your pulse for a moment Among the things that surround us Musical rhythm A verification of dizziness I feel a cool breeze bent over my desk, over maps.

Η ησυχία μου ταιριάζει Είσαι κι εσύ σαν και μένα Μπορώ να έρθω κοντά σου χωρίς τα πόδια μου Σαν βάλσαμο με διαπερνά μια Πολυνησία Μια κίτρινη φωτεινή ακτή Τα μαλλιά είναι αχτένιστα και τα μάτια γυαλίζουν Ηλεκτρισμένη ατμόσφαιρα Αυτός μόλις που φαίνεται Βήματα σβησμένα που αφιερώνονται και ύστερα χάνονται σε στενούς δρόμους Γυρνώντας πάλι στο βυθό, σαν παλιό χρέος Σκοτεινιάζει, θολό τραγούδι Αύριο θα φύγεις Θα κοιμηθώ στα πόδια σου σαν αστέρι που αναπαράγεται Σε ζωντανό νερό ξεφορτώθηκα τον παλιό εαυτό μου Ο κόσμος είναι απλός Κράτησα το σφυγμό σου μια στιγμή Ανάμεσα στα πράγματα που μας τριγύριζαν Ρυθμός μουσικής Επαλήθευση παραζάλης Νιώθω δροσιά σκυφτή πάνω στο γραφείο μου, πάνω σε χάρτες.

 Klasifikacija

“Classification” is a diary of images – everyday images are collected in a collage and juxtaposed with one creature-monster image from Aldrovandi’s book Monstrorum Historia (1642). The work deals with the emergence of automatism, repetitive design principles and sequences of images of different interests, and indirectly with the problem of structuring order and classification.

Tomo Stanič (1982) graduated in architecture from the Faculty of Architecture Ljubljana in 2010, completed the MA program of sculpture studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in 2016 and completed the doctoral program on theoretical psychoanalysis at the Faculty of Arts under the mentorship of Professor Mladen Dolar in 2017. He has written The Architectural Spectator (Arhitekturni gledalec), published by Studia Humanitatis. He has been a member of the editorial board of the magazine and publishing house Praznine since 2010. His writings has been published by the Praznine, ŠUM and Problemi magazines. Recently, he has lectured on contemporary art at the Museum of Architecture and Design MAO, Museum of Modern Art and Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova in Ljubljana. He has participated in solo and collective art exhibitions, both at home and abroad.

LEVIATHAN

by Victoria Deliyianni

VDeliyianniLeviathan

Leviathan

You are a ruthless bitch. You are a child.

I am not a child! Well, maybe I am both a child and a woman at the same time…
And whatever else I ephemerally wish, claiming the carefree and calm moments of everyday life.
A Whale, a Snake, a Crocodile, a Dragon, a Biblical Dinosaur.
God created me to frolic in the sea.

Lies… God originally produced two of us. A male and a female.
Fearless and unbeatable Creatures, unrivaled in grace, form and motion.
Fearing that the multiplication of our breed would threaten His creation He destroyed one of us.

Me? He granted me immortality to soothe the pain for the loss of my partner.
What helps immortality, If it isn’t protection from the misery of the routine?
The last three hours of the day, God comes and plays with me, probably from misplaced guilt, until the Judgment Day.
Then Archangel Gabriel will finally redeem me, by killing me.
My flesh will feed all righteous believers… (though doomed, in my opinion) and my shining, scaly skin will become their shelter.

I was however created as selfish, hedonistic and opportunistic…
Eventually, will I ever pull through?

My charms cannot be missed. But to wash, to nourish and subsist myself to remain beautiful and unique for you fatigues me.
Male gazes still flatter me but I cannot bear them any more.
For you I will never be enough, never so radiant, ever so perfect.
Neither for me too?

Please, open your eyes to look inside the hundred eyes of mine.
Twinkling within like the rays of dawn.
Cause I might be something else now, and now… now again.
And you. And me. And us.

I desire to remain a child.
I long to grow into a granny.

Can you tame me, make a pet of me, put me on a leash for your priceless daughters?
I am not the intestinal sewer pipe you thought.
I don’t turn violent to “protect” us.

You are my selfless sweetheart.

Once now we have become three.
Do you want to make an agreement, the two of us – for you?
Would you like to enslave me for life?

Markos Vamvakaris, Bitch…
