The work “Amfitheatros” records a performance of the artist, which took place at one of the main amphitheaters of the School of Architecture of National Technical University of Athens. The continuous repositions of the body inside the theater’s space reveal the extended qualities of the space and negotiate the structures of different interpretations, associated with the identity of both the subject and the space. Multiple perceptions are revealed and interact with each other, creating an archive and a comment for the social and cultural disorder. The work was initially a site-specific installation as the video was projected at the scene of the same amphitheater that was recorded, creating a mirror relation between the participant viewer at the “real” space and the “performing” artist at the virtual one.
