Reading by Ioanna Gerakidi
"Feeling a little lighter than before I left" is a text on the perversity of the erotic touch, on the subversion of time and space
that lovers experience, on the alterity they fearlessly welcome in this fragile state of togetherness.
The text draws on unrequited meetings, on unfulfilled lusts, desires, facts and fantasies to speak about the impossible
as a means of thinking across new imaginaries and alternative ways of living, loving, longing.

Horse Follows Darkness
Film by Delia Gonzalez
Horse Follows Darkness is the latest 16mm film release by multimedia artist and composer Delia Gonzalez.
Featuring an all female cast of five ballet dancers, the narration unfolds in three acts, through which a heroine - whose looks emerge
as a fierce, sensual and enigmatic, perhaps even self - referential aesthetic leitmotif following Gonzalez’ central character in
'In Remembrance' conquers her battles with the embodiments of the devil, shadow, seduction and fear, all styled accordingly.
Inspired by early 1970's French film, spirituality and mysticism, Horse Follows Darkness reveals the deepest workings
of the heart and mind.
