We have been living under lockdown circumstances that took us by surprise, since 2020. Unprecedented conditions undoubtedly attract artistic action and bring the collective unconscious to the surface. What does solitary confinement mean today? What does purification mean and what are its rituals, what is goodbye? How is life for the community and what does the community “kill” in order to live? Whom does vulnerable represent? These are some of the big questions that the cultural and creative community will be dealing with in the years to come.
Project Lazaretta is supported by the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports and is developed in two parts:
Digital Culture Platform
Creation of a new platform of digital culture with Digital & Video Art, Screen Dance, Video Performances, Sound Art. Work is inspired by the two Lazarets of Syros and Corfu while focusing on the modern historical moment of the Pandemic.
A piece of our soul is always in the space of our confinement because we explore the person with all his psychological, physical, social and emotional characteristics, who experiences it.
We realize this Project in order to keep our traces alive.
These traces that make the experience of each of us unique, that come from the centuries of our existence but also that lead to the hope of the of the good life we desire for ourselves and for humanity.
