She is interested in a collaborative and social approach to explore personal histories, truths, economies and social relations. Bekan works on long-term research-based projects that involve different levels of collaboration, presented to the public in the form of performances, site-specific environments, and video/audio/text-based installations.

Maria Zervos’s most recent work revolves around an interdisciplinary approach to video, performance, poetry and drawing in an ongoing negotiation between topos and utopia. She remaps otherworldly landscapes such as the barren stretches of the Atacama Desert, the highest peak of Mount Olympus, gray zones or places off the map, such as refugee camps, in a search for personal geographies. Distinct for its allusions to passage, Zervos’s work often investigates the conflation of nature and culture, aspiring to social criticism.
