Train

 
Maria Kelesidi (1982, Greece) lives and works in London as a film artist. She studied 'Communication Art & Design' and 'Performance Design & Practice'.

Her work involves the creation of abstract imagery set to symbolic and stylised manners and structures. In her videos she intervenes people's daily routines with non-naturalistic fragments which she creates through reproducing familiar and unfamiliar daily life situations, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces. As a result new languages, dialogues and relationships are created that reflect on the deception of individuals' reality and perception in general. There is a constant reference and emphasis on human nature and her videos consider structures of influence and perception in order to examine connections between experience and significance.

Train (2010) is referring to the dematerialization of the momentarily human co–existence. The relation between now and then, before and after, the absence of the non-presence and the awareness of the presence when is gone. A look at the inner psychological confusion of the inability to capture the now and its demonstration by emphasizing on the fragile and imperfect human connections.
