by Eugenia Patsouri
coincidεncε is a collection of analogue photographs that resulted from a mid-August experience on Tinos island, Greece. For Eugenia Patsouri, “coincidence” is “a hidden chance until seen” — it’s by coincidence that she spent a mid-August on Tinos where she decided to focus on two locations of the island: Kolympithra Beach and the Church of Panagia Evangelistria in Chora, the capital of Tinos. Eugenia intuitively captured her surroundings and the unique pilgrimages that were all taking place in parallel.
This hand-fabricated, spiral-bound book serves as a container, where the photographs co-exist, connected by a wire crossing through them. The multiple options for viewing this book — including hanging on the wall or standing up on a table, similar to a calendar — create a space for the viewer to enter, wander, stay, and ultimately revisit at one’s own pace and place.
Eugenia Patsouri is a Greek neuroscientist based in Berlin who is fascinated by vision — photography allows her to explore the subjective sight and perception of the world.
