YSTERA (greek for 'afterwards') is a music film by Tzitzifriki[a], an audiovisual duo from Athens, Greece, working both with live performances and recorded music and video. By employing a mix of old and new technologies both visually and sonically, they manage to hang their work within an undefinable time frame, reminiscent of how memory often blurs fact and fiction, or is tinted by an undefinable nostalgia. The piece does exactly that, mixing memory with the everyday, giving the impression the two are in fact the same.
About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
