Perdikaki

Catriona Gallagher
A poetic journey through the concrete cityscape of Athens in search of a mystery that may not exist, though the journey is no less real for it. Catriona Gallagher has a rare attentiveness to the environment: few directors, even those working in the travelogue essay genre, would be able to build an entire film around the search for an urban weed which everyone has seen but no one knows the name of. Here, poems, as Akhmatova wrote, grow shamelessly in trash.

Catriona Gallagher is a visual artist and filmmaker working between the UK and Greece. Through moving image, drawing, writing and installation, her work examines overlooked details at the intersection of manmade and natural environments. In 2016 she co-founded the A-Dash project space in Athens with Eva Isleifs, Noemi Niederhauser and Zoe Hatziyanaki. She holds a BA in Sculpture from the University of Edinburgh and an MFA from the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University.
