Body with mirror in time

Xristina Foitou works with the model’s female body and orchestrates on paper its manifold traces. Her matter is the moving female model who leaves her traces on paper and then Foitou selects some of these traces which she draws and completes in terms of intelligible form and colors. In contrast to Yves Klein’s Anthropometry paintings which leave the models themselves create the work, Foitou chooses to interfere in the canvas and her artwork takes the course she selects. She thus aligns herself with a great deal of old painting in which the model is the pretext for an entire universe to unfold.
