ARTIST STATEMENT: This work is part of an ongoing documentation of the decimation of Athenian palm trees by the red palm weevil. The palm tree adorns various buildings of symbolic importance to Greece, observing their demise, I also traverse the recent history of Athens documenting various types holes, voids and deconstructions of the 20th and 21st century; holes made in the trees by the bug itself, burnt pavement from riots, archival footage from uprisings, bullet holes and graffiti from urban warfare.
