Andria Kyriakidou

Andria’s piece is a two-minute video thinking around Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr’s epigram while he was serving as the editor of El Figaro magazine in 1849 “The more things change, the more they stay the same”. A quote used to stimulate thinking about propaganda, power, representation, and information and can be applied to any number of contemporary events. Considering the year-long on and off lockdown state and the Pandemic baking boom era as the change that has occurred; Andria is attempting to visually translate capitalism’s follow-up on “staying home”, “adapting life in the domestic” and “home baker” lifestyle-trend as the system’s ability in turbulent changes to not affect reality on a deeper level other than to cement the status quo. Feeding on the world's fascination with subservience, consumption, death, and pedagogy to reinforce its power.
