Possessed by Glint and Dreams

Koumoundouros' work addresses a fundamental tenet of the American Dream: home ownership, inviting viewers to consider the ties—emotional, financial, and psychological— that bind us to the place we call home.

In Possessed by Gilt and Dreams Koumoundouros invites viewers into a world of displacement and desire in objects both new and retrieved from an amalgam of histories, centering on that of the abandoned house explored in Notorious Possession. Extrapolating from the objects left behind, from interviews with neighbors and by drawing from her own imagination, Koumoundouros insinuates her own life into the abandoned home to create a haunting narrative that is emotional, confusing, and generous, defying both easy categorization and a simple solution.
