The Rafter of Medusa


HD Video - 10,10min

To work entitled The rafter of the Medusa reveals a dialectic,playful Inquiry concerning the meaning of the destination. The 10 minutes video documentary functions as a poetic standby metaphor for a metaphysical departure. With essential reference the work of T. Gericault (Le Radeau de la Méduse) the journey finishes at the end of matter. They float resignedly on a raft, seceding gradually, All go and vanish, even the landscape. The raft twirls rudderless. The locus is the ephemeral vehicle and not the destination. There is no background only expectation for the beyond. The entire project was first presented at the Hellenic American Union in 2011 entitled "Intake ¨ (curated by S. Bahtsetzis). In 2012 Gallery Elika, Athens (curated by S. Bahtsetzis). In 2012 in the form of video installation in Onassis Cultural Center in Athens.
