Pathos y Lagrimas







Life is good when life is gone







And time dissolves the strongest love








And I could die






No one's inside





Unlike the rest





 

I miss you for best






You never, ever,






ever cared

Gaucho



With fire to keep us warm
and tools we made from rocks and bones
A roof over your head
and walls to keep you safe in bed





 
There must be more than this
So God was born 
and we in his image of fear and love
looked down upon from up above







We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
if we wanna see the world change






We crossed the oceans wide
built cities to the sky oh Lord
Looked up and we were flying
but will we not survive ourselves






What will I say to my baby
Let me show you a movie
we landed a man on the moon






Now you could never believe it
ya we could do anything
We flew to the stars and back
down to the ground hard






Please wake up

We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things




 

You know we landed a man on the moon
I know it's hard to imagine
but we could do anything
under the stars.

Anaximandros in Foukousima





Anaximandros in Foukousima


A solo exhibition by Zisis Kotionis
02.10.2014 - 16.11.2014

Benaki Museum





Within the pre-Socratic cosmologies the weakened technical thinking of western civilization exists already. The fabrications and the tools of technique simultaneously lead to the destruction of the world, which they interpret, salvaging something from the poetics of the original thought.






 
 
Thus, reading the pre-Socratics establishes a form of wandering among the ruins of technical civilization, ruins accumulated on the ground, swept away by the tide of the ocean, oxidized from the burning of the omnipresent first matter.






 


The word of Anaximander and the other pre-Socratic scholars follows the traveller in an endless roaming and an open stay without destination; feeble proof of this open-air wandering in a background of destruction, accumulated and rearranged in a rough archive.







 


The museum, by a "tampered" use of its exhibition mechanism, presents a random archive of fragments of technique while at the same time becomes part of the technical civilization, in its disrepair.

Objects in Mirror




Read carefully, become familiar 
Consult for advice and assistance 
Statements preceded by the following words







Are of special significance 
Keep one of them in a safe place 
Make a note of the number in case 
You ever need to have a duplicate made.




 
If worn or frayed 
Or if their condition is doubtful 
Replace both front and rear 
Objects in Mirror are closer than they appear 







Check all items periodically 
Expect the unexpected 
Procedures other than those below





Could cause your claim to be rejected 
Remove cover, locate and identify each piece 
Position notches at right angles, push backward to release 
Do not splash on skin or in eyes





Turn counterclockwise 
with arrow pointing forward, 
As pressure starts to increase, stand clear. 
Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.

Mesh and Lace




You left without time for me to see
The full event that took the place of me
I felt the pain, saw the strife
The walls moved in, my thoughts will spin






It’s all the time now, there’s no way out
No way out
I’m trapped, encased, entombed, mesh and lace






Trapped in a maze of mesh and lace






It’s all the time now, there’s no way out
No way out







Trapped in a maze of mesh and lace (x4)

All apologies




What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I say
Everyone is gay
What else should I write
I don't have the right
What else should I be
All apologies






In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun



Married
Buried






I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I'll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezer burn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy






In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun

All in all is all we are.

Town Called Malice




Better stop dreaming of the quiet life
'Cos it's the one we'll never know
And quit running for that runaway bus
'Cos those rosey days are few







And...stop apologising for the things you've never done
'Cos time is short and life is cruel
But it's up to us to change 
This town called Malice






Rows and rows of disused milk floats
Stand dying in the dairy yard
And a hundred lonely housewives
Clutch empty milk bottles to their hearts




 
Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry
It's enough to make you stop believing
When tears come fast and furious
In a town called Malice







Struggle after struggle, year after year
The atmosphere's a fine blend of ice
I'm almost stone cold dead
In a town called Malice






A whole street's belief in Sunday's roast beef
Gets dashed against the co-op
To either cut down on beer or the kids' new gear
It's a big decision in a town called Malice








The ghost of a steam train echoes down my track
It's at the moment bound for nowhere
Just going 'round and 'round




 
Playground kids and creaking swings
Lost laughter in the breeze
I could go on for hours and I probably will
But I'd sooner put some joy back




 
In this town called Malice

You Know What I Mean




I, I can't take things slowly
Come let away, that's what they all do
Help me cause I'm feeling shaky
Tell me what's wrong with my brain
Cause I seem to have lost it







Cause I am afraid of the light
Yeah, you know what I mean
And I can't sleep alone at night
Yeah, you know what I mean





Lonely, that's not quite my problem
I have all I need, haven't quite lost it
I try so hard to be happy
Cause something goes wrong once again





Please, please come and save me
Tell me what's wrong with my brain
Cause I seem to have lost it





Cause I am afraid of the light
Yeah, you know what I mean
And I can't sleep alone at night
Yeah, you know what I mean





Cause I am afraid of the light
Yeah, you know what I mean
Cause I can't sleep alone at night
Yeah, you know what I mean
