Item Details
“Mashup explosivity”, come view my installation with The Lower Eastside Girls Club, transform it to your heart’s wish. 136 Avenue C, East Village The Lower East Side girls club.

In this series of collages, I identify with the studious practice of archival research in the military and historic fields, and I paint using details of found photos, accentuating the texture and recomposing new artworks using these memorable images. I am also interested in the fact that a lot of the imagery of tragic events is hidden out by traumatized viewers, only to be rediscovered by later generations.

​In this collages, drawings of light and matter explosions, in gigantic fireworks, against an immutable and dark charcoal sky, producing a dazzling sight of transformable tragedy. I am interested in that moment when a human-caused catastrophe induces a captivating sight, reminding us of the allegory of the cave by Plato. These artworks serve as a representation of the suddenness of these tragedies.

Eirini Linardaki

Heraklion, Greece

Eirini Linardaki was born in Athens and studied art in France, where she lives for two decades. She lives and works in France, in the United States, and on the island of Crete. The artist deliberately creates happy images and colorful “bursts” of enjoyment and energy with children sharing their daily lives, since she thinks that childhood is the place from which all we come.
She created public art in New York, Paris, Athens and Heraklion and she was commissioned for several public art installations by the NYC Mayor’s office for climate change, the NYC Parks and the NYC DOT. Her public installations are currently on view in Heraklion, Athens, Newark, NJ, Queens, and Brooklyn, NY. She often works in collaboration with communities and schools to develop her installations. In her latest body of works she uses archival material and Wikileaks footage in order to incorporate conflict imagery in her discourse.
