Eleftheria Amolochiti, Vicious Delicious

With an old jar of Maraschino cherries as a starting point, Amolochiti creates a bizarre, mythical and rhythmical video that brings the viewer into a completely inspiring mix of working class aesthetics and fantasies of the bourgeoisie. The video balances campy humor with the artist's research about the historical and geopolitical significance of the Adriatic sea and the capitalist commodification of an imaginary working class that has barely been represented, yet carries a significant cultural appeal. To an extent, this piece is the visualisation of an individual's brainstorming session about the arbitrariness of cultural power and its signifiers.
