The cross
Pierre Restany

The cross is one of the oldest symbols of the presence of man on earth and Ms Vassiliki uses it as the basic element of her art. 
In Athens in 1998, they are people who deny to Ms Vassiliki her fundamental right, the use in her work of the most humanist symbol of mankind. 
Such an attitude reveals a surprising narrowness of mind in a land which pretends to have invented democracy and given birth to individual freedom of expression.
