Μπαίνοντας στην Εικόνα οι Λέξεις [When Words Enter the Picture; in Greek]. Nicosia: Visual Artists Association EI.KA, 2017. (Book proposal selected after competitive open call issued by the Visual Artists Association in 2016. The call asked for book proposals that addressed Cypriot art. My book is based on primary research (recorded and transcribed artist interviews and studio visits) that I carried out in Cyprus in 2016 and 2017. The book includes selected excerpts of the transcribed conversations, which revolve around the issue of artistic process and the relationship between making, thinking, and articulation. I edited all conversation excerpts in collaboration with the interviewed artists. The conversations are accompanied by texts I wrote that further address some of the issues raised. These texts refer to and quote sources that have not been published in Greek, such as several texts within art theory, philosophy, and feminist theory. As such, I translated all of the quotes I used from English to Greek. Moreover, I approached the book partly as a creative project and, thus, designed the cover and all the text and image layout. The book was funded in part by a grant awarded to the Visual Artists Association by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture.)
The book includes conversations with thirteen contemporary artists that work in Cyprus (Athena Antoniadou, Natalie Yiaxi, Peter Eramian, Elizabeth Hoak-Doering, Elina Ioannou, Stelios Kallinikou, Phanos Kyriakou, Maria Lianou, Maria Loizidou, Neoterismi Toumazou (Maria Toumazou, Marina Xenofontos, Orestis Lazouras), Loizos Olympios, Polys Peslikas, Efi Savvides). The conversations revolve around questions of artistic process and the relationships between making, thinking, and articulating.
