"Relic is something that has survived the past, something that’s left behind; be it a memory, an object, a language or a being.
In a makeshift room, decorated in a haphazard DIY fashion, a performer puts his notably awkwardly shaped body under the magnifying glass. Magic comes from the mundane and references to cabaret, vaudeville and slapstick abound. Greek artist Euripides Laskaridis is preoccupied by ideas about transformation and ridicule. By testing the limits of our acceptance of the incongruous and unfamiliar, performer and audience alike will experience a moment of transcendence."
