Instructions for Greeks in Case of Emergency is a project that consists of three paintings and five xerox size embroideries that gives instructions on how to do the sign of cross according to the Greek orthodox religion and (in the last step) on how to perform a superstitious gesture of scaring evil away, specific to the Greek culture. Each instruction is one step of positioning the hands in a way that they complete the sign of the cross and also the final gesture. The painting features the first step of the instructions, but stands in an ambiguous place between illustrating the move and illustrating the universal gesture of one touching their forehead. The two pieces are juxtaposed and engage in a conversation with each other so that the viewer stands at a place where they shift between a universal gesture that they are able to identify with and a more inaccessible gesture specific to the Greek culture. The piece engages in a humorous but cynical way with the current political and economical crisis in Greece. The embroidered text on the linen follows the Greek tradition of using embroidered text on linen to craft a piece that says "Goodmorning". The "Goodmorning" piece is used traditionally in Greek houses to decorate the wall over the dining table and to "wish" to the family members a good start of their day. The gesture featured in the piece is a highly superstitious gesture but also a gesture that indicates a terminal situation. The one performing the gesture is left with no other solution than to pray to God for help. In the piece I tried  to engage the viewer with a performative act of despair and at the same time using dark humor to point out the terminal aspect of the Greek crisis.
