.KNOTRPSELL_first_constuction_by FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR
, 2016_ intermedia performative installation.
Within the scope of the exhition Regarding Nicolas Calas at the Athens School of Fine Arts.
The work titled KNOTRPSELL_first_construction_by FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR, 2016 is an intermedia performative installation of a site for the interaction of more artistic media such as a sculptural installation, a text industrially woven into fabric, voice, sound and performance. This intermedia performative installation belongs to the wider body of a work-in-progress with the general working title What is to be undone.
For that work, in 2013, Vassiliea Stylianidou exported 20 multicolored bolts of fabric from the family fabric business in Thessaloniki to Munich aiming to produce/generate – through the work – a debt that is simultaneously financial, familial and artistic. Through an artistic narrative that moves in-between truth and invention, Vassiliea Stylianidou ponders with critical irony, the meaning and the construction of artistic value: in the context of the specific work-in-progress, the debt is equated with the work of art itself: the debt is the artwork, its medium and its materiality – as it is continuously being transferred from the institutional organizer to the artist, from the artist to the artwork and thence to space and also to the viewer herself. That debt, impossible to repay, is set into constant motion, becoming transformed and hybrid.
Since 2013, following several different, successive and autonomous performative installations, the twelve bolts of fabric spread/transfer and transform the debt and the value of the artwork, as they engaged every time with the new thematic sequence of the respective work. In this manner, different systems of thought and organization converse in the artwork, such as visual and poetic thinking with (made up) financial reality with the social structure of the patriarchal family, with the body (embodiment) and with sexuality. For the exhibition Regarding Nicolas Calas, Vassiliea Stylianidou constructs a poetic text that explores the question of the mutual influence between language and the body and gender identity. Using as a departure point three phrases from N. Calas’ poetry collection 16 French Poems,
Nothing is yours and your gender scares you
You will not see me any more as I am, not even in words
Nothing can stop the news item
the artist continues in her text the exploration of “what words make up the body”, by positing a series of questions and poetic positions on the constructive and performative potential of language in the possible reconstructions of the gendered body’s identity.
Following an order by the artist, the text is woven using a weaving machine.
In this performative installation are involved the text, the weaving and seven strips cut off from the twenty bolts – that have come from the artistic narrative which conjoins financial and familial debt as well as the body as a gendered system of identities.
At the same time, the text is the basis for an audio work.
The performance along with the audio work humorously conjoins transgenderism and intermediality as potentialities for performative construction and as experienced realities.
The word KNOTRPSELL in the work’s title is a made up word which the two performers do and undo for and with the viewers. In this manner, critical exploration is instigated of one or two of the many possibilities of construction and reconstruction of gender through language, following and paraphrasing what Judith Butler describes in her book Undoing Gender: «One is always “doing” with or for another, even if the other is only imaginary. What I call my “own” gender appears perhaps at times as something that I author or, indeed, own. But the terms that make up one´s own gender are, from the start, outside oneself, beyond oneself in a sociality that has no single author (and that radically contests the notion of authorship itself).»

https://nicesdv.wordpress.com/
During the opening of the exhibition NICE! An exhibition and a book I presented the performative sound/video installation with the title “FA®THER_ERRATIC PATTERNS. By FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR“.
In the specific work the FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR_agents are the following:
Performers: Polyxeni Angelidou (dancer, choreographer) Vassiliea Stylianidou.
Music: Vassiliea Stylianidou, Lorenz Erdmann
Sound editing, music arrangement assistant and mastering: Lorenz Erdmann
Design and execution of performative uniform: Vassiliea and Despina Stylianidou
Weaving of text into fabric using a knitting machine: Eftichios Agathonikos
Translation: Konstantin Konstantine Matsoukas
Proof-reader: Christina Spyropoulou
Documentation: Marigo Angelidou (Photography), Kyriakos Tsiftsopoulos (video).
The work titled “FA®THER_ERRATIC PATTERNS. By FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR„ is assembled and unfolds through five different artistic media: (poetic) text, sculptural installation, performance, video and music. These media interweave and interrelate, both spatially and conceptually, to produce a performative video installation.
The work “FA®THER_ERRATIC PATTERNS. By FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR„ treats the concepts of return and of language as a linguistic and bodily topological process of recurring patterns.
The work constructs with humor and a critical edge a particular narrative in which are involved in an interactive capacity 20 bolts of fabric, a clothing export company, a family, a debt, 500 Art Bonds, two or three texts, voice, rhythm, the audience and the artist herself.
Materials: 20 bolts of fabric, text woven into fabric, video, music.
As of 2015, via a nexus of communicating works, Vassiliea Stylianidou evolves and constructs FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR. FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR (she, he, it). This author who/which is not one.
Gender: fugitive, genre: fugitive, trope: fugitive change. 
FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR is

a project conceived by Associazione 22:37, P67 Gallery Berlin.
May 7 - 20, 2016. P67 Gallery, Pfalzburgerstraße 67, 10719 Berlin.
Out of Place_an ongoing archive is a project conceived by Associazione 22:37 that began in 2013. This new phase of the project is initiated together with the newly formed Berlin-based association Peninsula.
The purpose of Out of Place is to create a temporary archive housing a broad overview of theoretical references and ideas about nomadism and its effects on the forms of contemporary art production. The core of our research is based on the idea that being out of place is a condition that causes a subject to continuously relocate himself or herself. This process leads to a movement that is fluid not only in space, but in time as well, a necessity for constructing the constantly changing meaning of our presence in a place. https://outofplacearchive.wordpress.com/ http://www.peninsula.land/

Platforms Project @ Art Athina, International Contemporary Art Fair Athens 2015.June 4– 7 2015 at Faliron Pavilion (TaeKwonDo Stadium), Athens GR. Stand P21.
http://works-r-us-romanzo-manifesto.tumblr.com/
"WORK(S) R US BY THE FORMER COLLECTIVE FOR THE ERRATIC PRESENT" is a collaborative project with collective inquiries and interventions initiated by STUDIOvisits Berlin.
With writers, artists, performers, paraphrasers, paradoxographers: Antonis Antoniou, Hypatia Vourloumis, Ezgi Kilincaslan, Panos Kompatsiaris, Panos Mattheou,  Funda Özgünaydin, Marios Chatziprokopiou, Chryssa Tsampazi, Vassiliea Stylianidou.
"WORK(S) R US BY THE FORMER COLLECTIVE FOR THE ERRATIC PRESENT" is a FOTO-ROMANZO-MANIFESTO (picture-essay) in progress on the difficult relationship between artistic work and economic politics (reality).
The different languages that reconstitute the text of FOTOROMANZO-MANIFESTO reflect a conflictual coexistence of the "local" with the "foreign", of that which "is-our-own" with that which "has-been-appropriated", of "togetherness" with the "each-one-for-himself", of "for-the-duration" with "in-retrospect", of "artistic jargon" with the "ever-present Other".
The reader of the FOTOROMANZO-MANIFESTO possibly comes face to face with elements foreign to the reading of the text. S/he is thus called upon to find recourse to different means of translating those foreign elements.
In the course of the project, the artists came face to face with factors foreign to the artistic process. Therefore, they too had to find recourse to other methods and practices of translating the external input as well as of importing it into the field of artistic production.
So how is reading realised?
How is the artistic process actuated?
Is it a production we are dealing with or is it all artistic process?
Is it all text?
Is it all work?
Or have we been overtaken by algorithmic exhaustion?
Or are we faced with a dried out reality underneath the unbearable sun?
All of those questions and many more are taken up in "WORK(S) R US BY THE FORMER COLLECTIVE FOR THE ERRATIC PRESENT" in a way that is ironic, self-mocking, wearily battle-ready, extroverted and restrained, critical poetical naturally! AND ABOVE ALL, ONGOING!
The project employs visual- and living-labour material from the project with the title „Let´s Collective  Mor(e)rning for Us - AΠΕΡΓΙΑΣ ΕΡΓΟΝ“ which took place in Molyvos, Lesvos GR in June 2014 (curated by STUDIOvisits Berlin and organised by Christina Sgouromyti with the support of the Athens School of Fine Arts and the Community of Molyvos).
