Evangelia Kranioti explores the borderlines of the world and captures individual destinies caught in the net of Man’s trade. Cargo ports, highways, the backstage of a carnival, graveyards, war ruins: settings of both ceaseless transit and immobilized lives, nailed to the ground or anchored at sea. In her project Exotica, Erotica, Etc., long-distance sailors await the next stopover, longing to form temporary and priced loves. In Obscuro Barroco, the urban queer scene unfolds in Rio de Janeiro, a vertiginous territory of gender and metamorphosis. In Beirut Fictions, African and Asian maids are confined to a foreign country, Lebanon, with no hope of integration. Finally, in Era Incognita, it is the living who migrate to the home of the dead, in Cairo’s necropolis, driven by the housing crisis in Egypt. In the heart of her work, faces and bodies meet and reflect each other across the oceans. Thus, Kranioti weaves the cartography of a vulnerable and marginalized group that she places at the center: the fresco of a community of outsiders which transcends the borders of the Mediterranean, matrix of exiles.
