Popi Tsoukatou: Consanguinity (Athens)
Popi Tsoukatou’s new body of works unfolds the variations in meaning of the Latin word ‘consanguinity’, which is either defined on etymological level as blood relationship or metaphorically as an inherent correlation.
Tsoukatou appropriates photographs of both her familial and broader circle, it being either kith and kin or friends of decades past, mainly during the 1950s and ‘60s, intervening with color at places in order to create an unabridged memory lane. This way, the references in her works reflect the archetypical ascendancies of descent, upbringing, history, geography, place, caste and personal culture, which invoke the collective memory. ~ Stavros Kavallaris
