who is gregorios pharmakis



gregorios pharmakis is an open identity formed by more than one collaborators. the plural person is conceived as a working team that uses the self's work to affirm this identity but this identity can never be shaped through any stable form. It will always be negated through trials of redefinitions that are always done as after work retrospections: pharmakis though is only affirmed when involved in field works and while having identity problems.

Gregorios Pharmakis is constituted as a person when acting within

the circumstances of a closed framework: a bus, an exhibition,

an organization, etc. it is there that the person's face can be shaped,

as a shared fantasmatic figure. Pharmakis is somehow identified

to the invisible ghost of this non-consciously structured

community. The person's figure could be seen

as an unconscious, irresponsible network function.

The 'parallel sitting condition' is the creative frame for the formation of the plural person (Gregorios Pharmakis never faces anybody). This characteristic of the person leads to the person's voluntary irresponsibility. The multiple person is conceived as a platform structure where some moves from others are expected to form the multiple person furtive figure.

Gregorios Farmakis exists only in the condition that

1. every operating member loses his or her signature entering the plural person

2. every operating member detects, inscribes, records, and re-establishes this specific urban condition by interacting to it

3. the detected persons entering the solid “bus- like” structures (the "passengers" of the bus) may take GF’s place even if as hostages of the ghost figure of Gregorios. Operating members and persons entering the "bus-like" structure are engaged not always voluntarily in the person's irrisponsability. The ghost person is not a shape that anybody of them can control. They enter thus every condition but they can never know and they do not know the whole setting of every Gregorios' project.

Another place to argue about gregorios Pharmakis platform. This is the place where the particularization of the concept of gf is to be done.


Gregorios pharmakis position has two interesting aspects to elaborate. Both refer to the parallel sitting condition: the first has to do with the common interior gaze that is creating really no interiority. the second has to do with the concept of the shifting center of such a community: this center can be shaped through the lacanian notion of the big other.



inversion of the conceptof the big other. no order of the low but order and unification from the fragments that are considered as exceptions.
