ELENI BAGAKI: NOW YOU SEE ME, OH NOW YOU DON'T

11 December 2015 - 10 January 2016 (Preview Thursday 10 December 6-9pm)

 

Now you see me, Oh now you don't

I am here

Fantasizing matter

Please open up immediately!

And let me watch

No pleasure guaranteed

Licking sucking and slapping air

I am eager for bread and love
