Vestiges are a poetic translation of what was, assembled from the remnants of wrapping paper collected from birthday presents. There is a performance element that extends from the pleasure of the unwrapping. This is evident in the traces of this process, as the actions of the body remain on the material. In making the work Raskopoulos experiment with the textural, reflective and sculptural potential of the materials. It is not clear what these wrappings once concealed. Sitting between the abstract and the figural, the works invoke ideas of camouflage and ambiguity.
