Panayis Chrysovergis: Heterotopias


By applying Foucault’s concept of heterotopia, I deduce what the space/place is like where utopia and the fantastic acquire material substance. The mirror is both a utopia and a heterotopia. The image/idol in the mirror is our utopia, while the mirror itself is heterotopia.
In this work, I illustrate heterotopias that result from the institution of society itself to become a sort of “counter-place,” calling attention to their utopian dimension.

I have always known that my passion was photography and the stories that I could tell to others with pictures. A picture cannot exist unless it has something to say. Portraits and snapshots of daily life – from birth to funeral; give the subject of the photograph a means to express his or her reality and fight stereotypes. I recognize that there is a lot of injustice in the world and sometimes it is easy to be overwhelmed, however, we all have the responsibility to contribute to making the world a little bit better and a little bit more just. I hope to do so with images and the stories behind them.
