“Sparus Aurata/Mare Internum”
"Video art "Sparus Aurata" is part of the tetralogy “Mare Internum” in which the artist creates an allegorical story regarding the beginning of the 21st century in Europe. Her combined inspiration consists ofan inverse parallelism of myth “Rapture of Europe”, the central idea of “Great Chimera” -a book by M. Karagatsis- and the “hot” refugee issue of recent years."
"Sparus Aurata" is also a metaphor for the way modern civilization cuts and redistributes wealth, in essence, the very human being.
