DIMITRA PETSA

Performance Artist 

My work aims for the look of something that is touched, the hand written, hand sewn, hand held.

ΤΣΑΡΟΥΧΙ (Tsarouchi)

My time in the workshops of the Presidential Guard of Athens, learning the traditional Greek craft of the Tsarouchi. I explore the documenatry as a performative act and a personal experiece. Alternating beween the spaces outside and inside the workshop I am remembering and learning the history of a tradition that is felt to be passed on. Walking barefooted across ponds with water snakes and hammering leather on wooden feet to create shoes.
