Maria Mavropoulou – ‘Inner State’

Maria Mavropoulou’s series ‘Inner State’ – serene rural sceneries captured during a period of crisis, with barely visible structures as a kind of neo-ruins to convey the feeling of being into the void between past and future.

“In this stagnant space, in this gap between eras, familiar Greek landscapes look bizarre, cut off the real world, pending for their unknown fate, as a visualization of the inner state of their inhabitants. The horizon is hidden behind thick fog preventing us to see what’s yet to come. Empty highways, solar panel fields, constructions left unfinished, rotten watermelons and torn flags seem stuck in an intermediate state, portraying the current situation, like distorted symbols of a bygone era of growth.”
