We are an artist duo working at the crossroads of visual art and literature. We make artists' books, installations and performances, and see them as vessels, depositories for narratives, comprised of textual and physical elements.
We both grew up at the borders – of cultures, countries, languages. The fascination with liminal states and spaces translates into our central themes: trauma and healing, violence and communication, isolation and unity.
In keeping with our backgrounds in linguistics and architecture, we see our creative process as world-building. Through the medium of language, its rigid grammar and syntax, Dinara explores realms of the human unconscious, while Christos moves in the opposite direction: from charcoal lines and watercolor shapes on paper to structured and sculptured narrative.
A book is our meeting point.
