Under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sport
We celebrate the Year of European Cultural Heritage
Video Installation Art, Participatory performance.
We create an expanded and unforgettable cultural experience highlighting European culture, through its mixtures and contradictions at the magical place of the Castle of Mytilene. Where the video Installation art, the archeological site and the audience became one!
Eye's Walk Festival turns the projectors on and illuminates with all the intense social and political problematics that feed our culture.
We choose the archeological site of Castle of Mytilene, (its Byzantine and Ottoman fortifications, an old whore house, the Ottoman hamam, the Ottoman fountain) as the ideal place where the negotiation of the individual with the modern world, its forces and weaknesses can happen safely.
The artworks are bringing up issues for the individual’s position in the modern, worldwide community. The water, the inhabitant, the moving person, the refugee, the immigrant, together forge our artistic narrative, a choreography of life and creation.
The archeological site, place of memory, insight and thought becomes a place where the past meets the present through the most modern art and digital technology.
We are honored to have eight  renowned, international artists within us!
Their art in direct dialogue with the place and the community turn our production into a heart-breaking experience!
The artists participating: Angelina Voskopoulou & Jessica Sartor d’Avigdor / "Turalu" / Greece & Germany, Angelina Voskopoulou / "Skin Deep" / Greece, Emmanuel Tussore / "Sirens" / France , Olga Guse / "Angels" / Russia, David Ian Bickley / "Darkwood" / Ireland, Florentia Ikonomidou / "Heart Attack" / Greece, Sarawut Chutiwongpeti / "Dreaming of a Greater Country" / Thaïland.
Art and our world is one.
Choreographer Ermira Goro creates, as a result of a common work with different communities of the island, a choreographed performance of citizens and visitors inside the Castle, a symbolic walking that reflects the constant movement of the human being searching his “Promised Land”.
This exchange of Life with Life has been as exciting as the space that hosted it.
The production is powered by the Lesvos Ephorate of Antiquities and the North Aegean Region and is funded by the European program “Europe in my Region”.
