NEKYIA

2015-2017

 

Nekyia has two meanings; the first is the inner journey into the unconscious through which you reconnect with and heal your wounded self. The second is the ancient Greek ritual in which spirits were quizzed on what the future would be. 
 

Using the river Acheron as a guide for my personal nekyia across Epirus, my aim is to create a metaphorical and allegorical perspective on modern day Greece, juxtaposing the mythologic heritage of the region to the current political-economical situation.
