The places that we have known belong now only to the little world of space on which we map them for our own convenience. None of them was ever more than a thin slice, held between the contiguous impressions that composed our life at that time; remembrance of a particular form is but regret for a particular moment; and houses, roads, avenues are as fugitive, alas, as the years.
Marcel Proust, Remembrance of Things Past (Vol. 1), Swann's Way, Place-names: the name
Zoe Hatziyannaki’s work focuses on space and its relation with time seeking to suggest that space is not static but a shifting reality transformed along with society and our ever changing perceptions. Based mainly on Deleuze’s theories, she is investigating the multiple dynamic connections between diverse notions which construct and deconstruct space such as the near and the far, nature and culture, private and public, the outside and the inside. Her effort is to realize space as an incessant flow of production of relations and thus abandon restraints of fixed categorisations.
