Displaced

In psychology, the notion of displacement is characterized by the redirection of an impulse, whether positive or negative, to a less threatening target (an object or a person). The feeling expressed remains the same, while being directed at a symbolic substitute. This process, particularly triggered when a subject feels out of place, serves as a defense mechanism.

Evridiki’s evocative photographs, charged with personal emotions, here offer the spectator the possibility of projecting his or her own affects, and thus telling an entirely different story.
