Are You Interested In Art?

2001 | video, εγκατάσταση

Presented at:
>Trash Art, Technopolis, Athens

In a few words:
The video is a 7 minute projection that could be considered as a short-lengh-movie presenting the development of four
parallel stories. A reader who “consumes” and tiles newspapers, a group of smokers who smoke and collect
the cigaret leftovers, the written narration of a small story that instantly becomes trash and last, a trash
collector at his natural environment. The trash collector, once in a while, replies to the question of an invisible
reporter -which question consists the title of the video- with the phrase: "I am not interested in art. I am
interested only in trash."
The installation is consisted by a TV screen placed on top of newspaper tiles and a jar with the cigarette leftovers underneath.
