Today I decided to open up a drawer of hoarded belongings. Some muted colours caught my eye, the dead shades, stone, dusty pink and autumnal brown.They were three pairs of the most delicate antique soft leather and suede gloves.
 
Hands hands with lots to do,
Hands so strong,
Hands so nimble,
Hands so weak.
 
The first thing handed down to me in life was a personal role and some tiny white sheets for my
tiny bed.
 
Xenia C.I. Vitos (b. London, 1977) is a Greek-British multidisciplinary artist currently living in Athens, Greece. She works with sculpture, embroidery, painting and photography. As an artist she hijacks symbolism of religious iconography in order to use it in her own self made rituals. Appropriating items that are synonymous with the middle class, handed down to her by the women of her family, she reworks them morphing her familial normality into her own parallel universe.
