Repair

The photos in the leporello are a registration of mending work on textiles from the Martinos Fine Arts & Antiques collection in Athens. Repair is related to Repair on News, a series about repairing in a literal and metaphorical sense.
Editions of the Greek newspaper I Kathimerini (2009 - present) have been embroidered with patterns inspired by traditional Greek textile in an attempt to bring some antidot to the overwhelming problematic daily news with fragments of civilization.
