Summary
"Vivi Touloumidi investigates adornment as an active agent to address social discomfort, repression, and marginalization in the public realm. Her project appropriates and subverts signs of stigmatization employed during WWII, and through in-depth research, it proposes anew statement pieces that speak of resilience, emancipation, and self-determination of the social body. The publication includes a substantial selection of bureaucratic files of that time, which have served as reference for the work. Along with images of the making process and two bodies of work in dialogue with drawings, texts contextualise the references and the creative process in different tones and formats, from an academic essay, to a long dialogue and a poem." -- Publisher's website
