Marina Kassianidou has been working on a series of works Dotted Lines since 2010 when she was in residency at the Ragdale Foundation in Illinois. It has since flourished into hundreds of collages around this idea of dots and lines that she has with such fastidiousness immersed herself in, reaching another level of concentration and consciousness, performing contractions of the self, and conceptualising surface and space in their co-making. Today, she shares with us a single installation of several collages in the exhibition entitled page intentionally left blank at artist-led space Thkio Ppalies in Nicosia.

Artist Book

How to Know: A Space / Πως να Γνωρίζεις: Ένα Χώρο
Marina Kassianidou
With a contribution by Emiddio Vasquez Hadjilyra
Published with the support of Thkio Ppalies
Edition of 300
ISBN: 978-9963-2301-0-5

How to Know: A Space is a bilingual artist’s book (English and Greek) revolving around ideas of space, translation, representation, knowledge, and experience. It involves a fictionalized conversation between characters—human and non-human—all of whom approach the question of “how to know a space” from several points of view: architecture, engineering, mathematics, visual art, theater, and fiction writing, among others. The fictionalized conversation draws upon actual conversations the author carried out with people from various fields, with authors via their published texts, and with spaces. One part of the conversation is actual and involves a dialogue between a text written by Emiddio Vasquez Hadjilyra and a text written by the author.

The book is available for sale at Moufflon Bookshop and at The Shopkeeper & Co.



Exhibition list and installation views have been updated. More installation views and images of new work coming soon.
