   The Trout

The Trout was presented on group exhibition Eat It, held in Art Prisma Gallery in Piraeus - Greece, in June of 2011 and curated by Marina Kanakakis.

The theme of the exhibition was the relationship between art and food and how the  sensorial interaction creates a multidimensional artistic experience.


The concepts of nutrition and consumption are explored on a symbolic and literal level, creating a fantasy game between man and the world.

The piece consists of three parts:

...a life-size sculpture portraying the artist's hands holding a trout

paper sculpture showing two hands holding a trout

...a text in the form of a recipe, that links the sculpture to the dish
