By Zoi Aliozi
WHERE THE YOUNG
THAT DO NOT
BUT HARMONIOUS AND NONCOMPETING
WITH OPEN CURTAINS
About the poet:
Dr. Zoi Aliozi was born in Serres, Greece, on 21 March 1980, and moved to England where she studied LLB. She is a human rights expert and activist, with an international career, engaging with global justice’s issues. Her publications deal with human rights, philosophy and international law; with social and political topics, climate change, feminism, as well as aesthetics, critique of cinematography, poetry and art. She is also a painter and graffiti artist, while has published comic strips and sketches in various periodicals.
Her poetry comes from the struggle to reconcile reason with emotion, in a direct communicative style, by using the traditional language construction built on alphabet. She engages with a laconic style of sarcastic linguistic games; between the implied ideal truth—fired by the ego’s urge for emotional connection to the other and the world—and the ideal universal deception of eternal unconditional mutual sentiment. Her writing is founded on a subconscious process of expressing the indescribable, through an internal dialogue fuelled by the perpetual war of reason and emotion; lost in translation.
