Aikaterini Gegisian’s new work in Is This Why I Cannot Tell Lies? is built around the concept and practice of collage or – in a more cinematic sense, the ‘jump-cut’. She has assembled a heterogeneous body of material including images of gymnasts and space missions; scientific illustrations of Einstein’s theory of relativity; flower patterns and home interiors from both Soviet and Western photo albums and magazines. This found material is complemented by Gegisian’s own photographs, alongside a sound installation based on a dream diary and a text-book on how to become a male escort.
