“i often felt that the past would last forever” (Sam Albatros)
Video-art version of the online performance by Sam Albatros, that took place on facebook between 2017 and 2018. Family pictures and video are intertwined with cyber-sex scenes with the poet Ntinos Christianopoulos, Sailor Moon curing homosexuality, Sam as a slave-Pokémon. Confessional poems are intertwined with cut-up poems that have been created after googling personal trauma: cut-up poems made out of other people’s trauma, as they have been posted in online forums, youtube comments etc. Poems that can be viewed as a collective queer confession of the Greek internet. An attempt by Sam, so that their own past becomes universal, so that it does not belong to Sam or anybody, so that it can’t hurt us anymore.
