This video combines footage of two antithetical situations that can be found on the internet.
The non-stop single-handed round the world voyage without assistance is shown next to footage material from the crossing of the Mediterranean by migrants. These sequences are poles apart : on the one had, one person get a generous funding and constant monitoring, and on the other hand people fleeing their countries to save their lives have to pay smugglers to embark on small ships, with no guaranties over their own security neither on the success of the operation. Following the concept of the contrapunto, the video is constructed in such a way that a visual and sound harmony is created. The reality hidden between the contrast of these two worlds put on display becomes even more evident.
I studied sculpture studies at the Fine Arts of Athens and media art studies at the Academy of Media Arts of Cologne. My approach is interdisciplinary and it embraces visual art, video and sound installation, and sculptures.The concept of boundaries is central to my practice, and the choice of the used media is decided during the development of the work itself, in direct correspondence to it. Ranging from the poetic to the politic, I wish each time to make full use of the potential of rupture of the classical perception.
