Yiannis Pappas | The Wanderer Above the EU Borders

Yiannis Pappas | The Wanderer Above the EU Borders

Inspired by the famous work "The Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" by Caspar David Friedrich the video "The wanderer above the EU-borders" shapes and re-shapes a new utopian human re-presentation as a metaphor for the unknown future. The video-work is filmed on the island of Psarra, opposite the Greek-Turkish borders,


Gaddis (2004) felt that the impression the wanderer's position atop the precipice and before the twisted outlook leaves "is contradictory, suggesting at once mastery over a landscape and the insignificance of the individual within it."

The flag is the collective acceptance of an emblem or symbol. Here, the artist uses it to represent merely his presence in the space. Performing the monumental moment of the raising of a flag and imitating stances from iconic paintings and photographs (from the Russian revolution, French revolution, Gay Pride, Indignados movement etc.), he attempts a gesture void of meaning and symbolism, an oxymorous symbol of today.
