most of the times each one of us
two of us, three of us

on the bus
going around and getting older
lalala
each one of us
approachable distant
in there out there
successful loser
all these at the same time
and even more

Collective exhibition Ordinary women, Praxitelous bar gallery, Athens

7/10/2015 - 22/10/2015

Photography Exhibition : 17 photographers – 60 photographs

Ordinary Women

This exhibition is dedicated to the average, typical and ordinary women.

As we all know, the social demands for “perfect” bodies and an “impeccable” attitude weigh especially upon women. So long as we look around us (and inside ourselves) at the millions of stereotypical pictures of the woman’s “perfection” that overflow the city, the tv, the internet, the magazines: the super woman that has it all and does it all – and is a bargain.

On the other hand, the 60 photographs of this exhibition aspire to show ordinary women, in real life: girls, women, mothers, housewives, old women, all of them being ordinary human beings of this world. These women are so ordinary as the situations we face in our everyday life.

At the same time, there is no doubt that they are unusual and unique: they are the (extra)ordinary women.

The exhibition was organized by me, old and current students and friends: Alex, Kiriaki Arabantzi, Stratos Arvanitis, Sofia Vikatou, Dimosthenis Giannakos, Dimitra Kakka, Istyl, Stavroula Karle, Giannis Kafkas, Tatiana Mavromati, Despina Papakonstantinou, Vasia Paparouni, Panagiotis Petrovatzis, Stratos Pavlelis, Anna Tagkalou, Sylvia Tsobanaki, Katerina Fafouti
