Join artists Aikaterini Gegisian and Victoria Ahrens to discuss their commissions for Peltz Gallery’s series Lessons from Lockdown: Learning from the Pandemic. What new questions or areas of interest arose for these artists during the COVID-19 crisis, and how are these reflected in their artworks? 

About the artworks

The Manipulator Vlog, Episode 3 (2021) by Aikaterini Gegisian
The Manipulator Vlog, Episode 3 documents the rural shift in Aikaterini Gegisian's life and work during the coronavirus crisis, set against the backdrop of her teenage magazine collection, which she rediscovered during the pandemic. The commission brings our attention and understanding to time passing, and to how daily life interweaves with larger histories.

Noli Mi Tangere (2021) by Victoria Ahrens
Noli Mi Tangere is a video collage featuring imagery created by the artist on the English south coast. Ahrens exposes and develops photographic plates on location, before then adding chalk and shale to the printed images. Referring to the isolation and the loss of touch during the pandemic, this process marks a desire for both bodily encounters and the landscapes from which we have been estranged.
