The Phaistos Project was selected to participate the Sphinx festival 2018 in Thebes.
Language by the festival organizers:
“The intent of the Sphinx festival is to highlight ancient philosophical questions that “challenge” the modern world. In a sense of practice and wider policy, we try to try out a kind of “social sculpture”, by interfering with collaborative projects, in social transformation. Through this theme we are looking for the potential of modern, individual and social foundations that are scattered by contemporary pluralist and imaginative centers of power.
This project will develop open visual interventions throughout the city – works of public sculpture in the form of ephemeral installations, land art, happenings, performance, outdoor video art screenings and what else can be proposed. We want the site of the mythical city to be transformed for 20 days into an example of social incitement, personal exploration, a place of wonder and a sensitive cry, call and protest.”
The Phaistos Project — Forty-five Symbols Animation was presented on Kastelia Hill from the 2nd to 6th of June 2018 and inside the Medieval Tower at the Archaeological Museum of Thebes from 7th to 9th of June.
