On Xerxes’ Throne
Evi Kalogiropoulou
Fiction : 16' / Dystopian, Bodies

A dystopian workplace at the Perama shipyard. A ban on physical contact has turned human interaction into otherworldly simulations. The suppression of touch has alienated the workers communication, transforming the boatyard into a charged landscape of alienation and repressed sensuality beyond stereotypical heteronormative desires.
