“Ermoupοli: Inside Out” project
In historical centre of Ermoupolis
Do you experience the public space as a ghost or as a human?
3d mapping, video installation art, site specific installation and performing art turn the public space into a “personal” place.
We invite artists to take part in the unique challenge of the “Ermoupoli: Inside Out” project.
How authentic can we really be outside our familiar space, our home? How open are we to let the public space become an extension of ourselves, and take a different meaning in our daily life?
Send us your proposals/stories: imaginary or real, virtual or surreal, desirable or ambiguous, humorous or dramatic, personal or collective. Their common ground will be the physicality of human body and its relation to the public space in the search of a new alliance between private and social, interior and exterior, dreams and reality.
The “Ermoupoli: Inside Out“ project will be presented in the city of Ermoupoli, the capital of Syros island where so many people from various backgrounds (religious, social, cultural, financial etc) meet.
Public space will come alive, and artworks will interact with buildings, ruins, docked ships, squares, roads and the city’s unique architecture.
Artists are encouraged to consider the following options with regards to the locations and venue possibilities that the city of Ermoupolis offers:
Eye’s Walk digital festival welcomes video installation artists and performing artists from all over the world.
Make video installation art, reshape a historical, neoclassical building of the 19th century and occupy the public space with your body, dreams and fantasies.
The team of the Eye’s Walk Digital festival will be responsible for the curatorial work and the production.
Starting from the island of Syros the "Ermoupoli: Inside Out" project may appear in other cities in Greece and abroad as an opportunity for people to connect with the public space through the art.
Applications deadline is April 15th, 2017.
Deadline for test screenings of the video projects on the chosen locations of Hermoupolis is June 15th, 2017.
